Nit’s Corn Macque Choux – Mockshoo II with Crawfish or Sausage2002-05-29
- Course: Side Dishes
One of the Classic Cajun dishes. Fresh corn off the cob makes this dish superior although frozen or canned will still be a hit! If not using fresh corn, add 1/2 to 1 cup of heavy cream or evaporated milk. Also, one small can Rotel Brand Tomatoes can be used in lieu of fresh tomatoes,
- 3 - 6 ears of corn, shucked and cleaned
- 2 tbsp butter or margarine
- 1 small onion, chopped
- 1 small bell pepper, chopped
- 2 tomatoes, diced
- 1/4 cup milk or cream
- 1/4 tsp black or red pepper
- Sugar to taste (optional)
- ½ tsp Salt
In a medium bowl, cut kernels off cob scraping the milk of the corn into your bowl to keep the additional flavor and liquid.
Sauté the onion, bell pepper and tomatoes until the vegetables are tender. Add the corn to the mixture, along with the milk or cream, salt and black or red pepper. Cook for 30 minutes over medium heat, stirring frequently.
