Cajun Corn and Bacon Maque Choux image

This is a Cajun recipe I've had forever! I first prepared it when I was in my high school class in Metairie, Louisiana. It's awesome!

Provided by Jodi Hanlon

Categories     Side Dish     Vegetables     Corn

Time 1h5m

Yield 6

Number Of Ingredients 10

6 ears corn, husked and cleaned
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 large onion, thinly sliced
1 cup green bell pepper, chopped
1 large fresh tomato, chopped
¼ cup milk
salt to taste
cayenne pepper
¼ cup chopped green onions
8 strips crisply cooked bacon, crumbled

Steps:

  • Cut corn off the cobs by thinly slicing across the tops of the kernels; place in a medium bowl. Cut across the kernels again to release milk from the corn, add milk to bowl. Set aside.
  • Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and green pepper, cook until onion is transparent, about 5 to 8 minutes. Combine corn, tomatoes, and milk with the onion mixture. Reduce heat to medium low, and cook 20 minutes longer, stirring frequently to prevent sticking. Do not boil. Season with salt and cayenne pepper. Lower heat, cover skillet, and cook 5 to 10 minutes longer. Stir in green onions and bacon. Remove from heat and serve.

2 strips bacon, chopped
1 jalapeño, diced
1/4 red bell pepper, diced
1 cup fresh corn kernels
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 1/4 cups stone-ground cornmeal
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

1 stick (8 tablespoons) unsalted butter
Pinch kosher salt

Steps:

  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.

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.

MAQUE CHOUX - CAJUN



Maque Choux - Cajun image

Maque choux is a stewed vegetable side dish. This recipe also includes okra. Don't be afraid of it! For a vegetarian version, just omit the bacon and use vegetable oil as your fat and substitute water or vegetable stock for the chicken stock. Adapted from an Emeril Lagasse recipe.

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.

Provided by Food Network

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.
