This CHEESY CORN side dish is extra delish and goes perfectly with favourite mains like chicken, salmon and steak. Yum!

If you’re looking for a new way of serving corn, give this unique recipe for CHEESY CORN a try. The surprisingly sweet flavour of the corn blends so well with the tang of fresh lime juice and the richness of both butter and feta cheese.

Although the recipe is written using barbecued corn, you can also make it with frozen – unlike most recipes with corn, this one works with most varieties, so choose your favourite. Simply blanch about 6 cups of frozen corn in boiling water for 2 minutes, then, plunge it into an ice bath before straining and letting dry on paper towels. After that, continue the preparation as written.

There’s really not much to making CHEESY CORN, but here are a few useful tips:

Most of the corn we consume is categorized as sweet corn. There are many different, delicious types of sweet corn that will enhance the flavour of this dish. Those with a higher sugar-to-starch ratio work best, so look for varieties like Peaches and Cream, Ambrosia, Cloud Nine or Miracle.

Finishing this side dish is easy with the addition of firm feta cheese, lime juice and parsley. I love the look of all the ingredients in the bowl right before we give it a toss. So fresh looking and awesome aromas too!

As mentioned at the outset, this CHEESY CORN dish is best enjoyed with a tasty main. Try it with our GRILLED or ROAST CHICKEN recipes. It’s equally fetching next to this BARBECUED SALMON or served with BEEF TENDERLOIN or FLANK STEAK.

      Hi Brenda… thanks for writing in. For sure you can substitute with frozen corn – just blanch it first and also, make sure it’s strained, you don’t want the corn too wet… it’ll make the side dish runny. Let us know how it works out!!!!
