Coconut Corn, fresh corn simmered in a rich and creamy coconut broth gives a wonderfully sweet, tropical flavor to a perfect side dish. Most of you will know that Lovefoodies is a huge fan of anything coconut, so when we saw lots of fresh corn in the grocers on offer we decided to get experimental and come up with some different ways to add flavor to the corn. This is one of them. It was so delicious. I mean REALLY REALLY delicious, that it is worth sharing.
The recipe and ingredients are very simple and straightforward, but the result is a rich, creamy coconut explosion with every bite!
This delicious coconut corn can be served alongside a BBQ, for example, you could cook as the instructions below then finish off on the hot coals for an extra flavor dimension or simply serve as they are. The coconut corn below was pre done as the recipe then added to the BBQ ready for serving once the meat was cooked.
I love this recipe because it's so simple yet packs a huge flavor. You could make these ahead and wrap in foil and warm through in the oven or grill if you'd like to make ahead.
Some other suggestions would be to slice the corn in to finger food sized servings and pop on a plate and serve at a party or buffet, or keep warm in a slow cooker once cooked and take to a potluck!
The coconut combined with the butter and milk add a wonderful flavor to this cocnut corn!
Please do enjoy our delicious Coconut Corn!
