Once reserved for weekend or holiday gatherings, sweet corn on the cob has become a regular occurrence at my house. Moreover, I've even been known to give it a quick Mexican Street Corn treatment. My secret? The Instant Pot.
Just in time for the onset or cementing of the winter doldrums, a rich chowder featuring sweet corn, tender shrimp, and crispy bacon is here to remind you about some of winter's finest comfort food. So grab a bowl and find the warmest spot in the house!
While they are at their best, let's pay homage to tomatoes and spend some time with recipes that highlight these garden gems. This time around, we're marveling at the fantastic duo of fresh sweet corn and beautifully ripe tomatoes in corn fritter-inspired hot cakes with salsa.
Relive a bit of summer with a chowder brimming with the flavors of buffalo chicken and summer's finest sweet corn. It brings together flavors you think of when the last days of summer arrive and the chill of autumn that we're enjoying right now.
My nod to late summer soup comes in the form of a chowder that's been kissed with just a bit of cream, is packed with great garden vegetables, and packs a lot of smoky flavor from bacon and smoked paprika. Add some tender shrimp right at the end and you've got a chowder that's giving more than a subtle nod to the season. It's enthusiastically head-banging!
