Corn Sauteed with Chorizo

By • May 30, 2012 • 2 Comments



Author Notes: I had a dish like this at LArtusi in New York and the chorizo gave the corn such an amazing something extra. I tried to redo this dish at home with amazing results. I cut back on the chorizo and added onions. It's smoky and rich and goes extremely well with fresh, summer corn (and even frozen corn, though it's not as crisp). The chorizo doesn't overpower the corn and it all melds together wonderfully. It's so simple and is now one of my very favorite ways to eat corn.SybilAB

Serves 4

  • 3 ears of corn, kernels cut off the cob
  • 1 4 inch piece of dried chorizo, diced
  • 1/2 a yellow onion, diced
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 pinch red pepper flakes
  • 1 pinch dried oregano
  • 1 scallion, thinly sliced
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • salt and pepper
  1. Add the chorizo to a large skillet over medium-high heat and saute until the fat renders and the pieces are crisp. Add the onion and stir, letting it soften a little.
  2. Add the corn, olive oil, oregano, and red pepper flakes. Stir until corn has softened slightly but still has a crunch. (Until heated through if using frozen corn.)
  3. Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper, stir in butter and scallions, and serve.

Sybil, I made this for dinner tonight and it was quite a hit. I loved the fact that the chorizo did not totally take over the dish, nor did the oregano. Served it with grilled yard-bird and a tossed salad and everyone loved it. This is going to be a great dish to take to pot luck dinners and Sunday get togethers. Thanks so much for the recipe.
