CORN MAQUE CHOUX



Corn Maque Choux image

When I first saw this recipe in Paul Prudhomme's cookbook, I was intrigued by it immediately because it did not occur to me to actually brown the corn to caramelize. Corn goes from non sweet to sweet - what magic! And I was also intrigued by his use of evaporated milk and eggs in the end. I've made this recipe many times and each time I make this, I am amazed by the transformation corn goes through. I've adapted the use of eggs and evaporated milk in other recipes and eggs used this way bring out the richness of many dishes. This dish is not for the diet conscious. It may look like lots of steps, but once you begin this recipe, you will find that most of the steps are stirring.

4 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup oil
7 cups frozen corn
1 cup finely chopped onion
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4-1/2 teaspoon cayenne
2 1/4 cups chicken stock (I use canned stock)

Steps:

  • Using high heat combine 4 T butter, oil, onions, sugar, pepper, salt, cayenne, and corn in a large skillet or frying pan. Cook until corn is tender and starch forms a crust on the pan bottom, about 14 to 16 minutes. Stir occasionally and stir more as it starts to stick.
  • Gradually add 1 C of the stock, scraping the pan bottom and continue cooking 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Add 4 T butter and stir. Cook 5 minutes, stirring frequently and scraping pan bottom.
  • Reduce heat to low and cook 8-10 minutes, stirring once or twice. Add 1/4 C stock and cook 15 minutes, stirring frequently. Add the remaining 1 C stock and cook 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Stir in 1/2 C evaporated milk and continue to cook and stir until most of the liquid is absorbed, about 3-5 minutes. Remove from heat.
  • In a bowl, combine eggs and the remaining 1/2 C evaporated milk. Beat until frothy. Stir into the corn and serve. Heat from the corn will cook the eggs, but will not curdle.

MAQUE CHOUX



Maque Choux image

This classic Cajun side dish is a sweet, hot, juicy, milky, buttery combination of corn, onions and peppers. It's often cooked in rendered bacon fat and enriched with heavy cream, but this version relies upon only butter and a little water in their place, which allow the ingredients' flavors to sing more clearly. While it is commonly understood that Fat Equals Flavor, there is a point at which too much fat actually masks complexities in flavors and dulls their vibrancy. Try the maque choux this way and see if you notice how bold and lively it tastes. If you miss the smokiness that bacon imparts, try instead a pinch of smoked paprika stirred in at the end.

Categories     dinner, easy, quick, weeknight, vegetables, main course, side dish

Time 20m

Yield About 1 generous quart

Number Of Ingredients 10

3 fresh ears of corn, shucked
8 tablespoons unsalted butter (1 stick)
1/2 red onion, cut into small dice
2 celery ribs, cut into small dice
Kosher salt
1 red bell pepper, cored, seeded and cut into small dice
1 small poblano pepper, cored, seeded and cut into small dice
1 small serrano chile, very thinly sliced
Freshly ground black pepper
Smoked paprika (optional)

Steps:

  • Working with 1 corn cob at a time, set the ear of corn upright in a medium bowl. Shave the corn from the cob by slicing down the sides using the tip of a sharp chef's knife, holding the knife almost vertical. (This gives you neat tablets of corn that land squarely in the bowl and keeps the kernels from scattering all over the counter.) Using the back of the knife, scrape each cob to release all the nibs and the "milk" of the kernels into the bowl. Repeat with remaining ears of corn, then snap the cobs in half, and add them to the bowl.
  • In a large, deep sauté pan, melt 3 tablespoons butter over medium heat until foaming. Add onion and celery, and season with 1 or 2 pinches of kosher salt. Stir constantly until softened and translucent but not browned, about 5 minutes.
  • Add 2 tablespoons butter and the bell pepper, poblano and serrano, and stir constantly, adding another pinch of kosher salt, letting the butter melt and the peppers soften and become translucent, about 2 or 3 minutes. You will smell the peppers' sweetness and their mild capsaicin releasing.
  • Add the final 3 tablespoons butter and the corn mixture from the bowl, cobs included, and another pinch of kosher salt. Stir constantly to coat with the butter and combine thoroughly.
  • When everything starts to hiss and sound hot, but isn't cooking so hard as to take color, add 1/2 cup water and a healthy few grinds of black pepper, and cover the pan for a couple of minutes to steam/shallow braise the mixture.
  • Remove the lid, and stir well, noticing the corn releasing its liquid and the kernels softening, and the cobs turning somewhat translucent, if however vague. You will notice a general softening and melding together. Return the lid, and let cook a few more minutes, noticing the water evaporating and the remaining liquid reducing and gaining some "body" and gloss. Discard the corn cobs, but do suck them before tossing - those buttery juices make a nice cook's treat.
  • Taste for salt, and serve. It should be sweet, spicy, a bit wet and surprisingly complex, given the few ingredients and their ordinariness. If you want a smoky taste, add a good pinch of smoked paprika.

CAJUN CORN MAQUE CHOUX



Cajun Corn Maque Choux image

This classic creamy side dish takes advantage of both the sweetness and the starchiness of fresh corn. The trinity of onions, bell peppers and celery gives it a distinctive Cajun flavor, while the tomatoes add brightness. Although usually a side dish, it sometimes takes center stage with the addition of shrimp or crawfish.

Categories     side-dish

Time 45m

Yield 4 to 6 servings

Number Of Ingredients 11

4 ears fresh corn
4 strips bacon, diced
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 stalks celery, diced
1 green bell pepper, diced
1/2 large onion, diced
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/2 cup milk
5 scallions, white and green parts, sliced (reserve the sliced green parts for garnish)
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 plum tomatoes, seeded and diced

Steps:

  • 1. Cut the kernels off of the corn into a large bowl. Using the back of the knife, scrape the sweet corn milk from the cobs to extract about 3 tablespoons and add it to the bowl. Set aside.
  • 2. Cook the bacon in a large skillet over medium heat until the fat renders and the bacon is crisp. Remove with a slotted spoon to a paper-towel-lined plate and set aside. Add the butter to the skillet and when melted, add the celery, bell peppers and onions. Season with salt and pepper and cook until the vegetables are soft, about 15 minutes. Add the milk, scallion whites, garlic, tomatoes and corn. Cook until thickened, 10 minutes.
  • 3. Serve garnished with the scallion greens and reserved bacon.
