Sweet Corn Salsa


I picked up some fresh corn this week from my local grocers. I was surprised they were still on sale this time of year. Anyway, it was great as it allowed me to make this Sweet Corn Salsa. This salsa goes wonderfully well with corn chips, and it’s a great appetizer/side dish with grilled seafood or chicken. As always, fresh corn is the best option for this recipe; but, if it is not available in your area, just substitute with canned corn instead.


Sweet Corn Salsa

Ingredients



2 Large Fresh Sweet Corns, husked, silk removed and steamed (about 5 to 6 minutes)
1 Small Red Pepper (Bell/Capsicum), seeded and finely diced
1 Red Chili
, seeded and finely sliced
1 Jalapeno, seeded and finely sliced
1 Large Tomato, seeded and finely diced
1 Clove Garlic, finely chopped

¼ Red or White Onion, finely diced

2 to 3 Tbsp Chopped Fresh Coriander
4 Tbsp Orange Juice
Juice of 1 Lime
¼ tsp Ground Cumin

Sea Salt

Freshly Ground Black Pepper



Method


Using a large, sharp knife carefully cut the kernels off the corncobs.



In a large bowl, combine corn kernels, pepper, chilies, tomato, garlic, onion, and coriander. Season the salsa with orange juice, lime juice, cumin, sea salt and pepper. Refrigerate the salsa mixture until ready to serve.

  2. Alas, no more fresh corn here. But I would think a person could make something very nice with frozen.

Dumplings

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up!

Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
