Spicy steamed corn

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
4 \N Corn cobs
5 \N Cm bit of fresh ginger; grated
3 \N Cloves garlic; chopped
1 teaspoon Chopped red chiles (up to 3)
2 teaspoons Green peppercorns
2 tablespoons Water
2 tablespoons Soy sauce

Here is a delicious sounding recipe I found in the Family Circle Thai Cookbook, I have replaced the fish sauce with soy sauce : Remove husks and silk from the corn, cut into smalleer bits. Mix ginger garlic, chiles, peppercorns and water. Press the spice mixture onto the corn cobs and place in a steaming basket lined with bannana leaves or baking paper. Place the basket over a wok or pan of boiling water and steam for 20 mins or until the corn is tender. Spinkle with the soy and serve.

I'm sure you could also do this in the microwave by coating the corn with the spices and then rolling the corn in microwave safe plastic wrap (cling wrap/glad wrap). It may also be really nice grilled! Posted to fatfree digest V97 #200 by laurab@... (Laura Barwick) on Sep 5, 1997
