Thai July on Corn

Uploaded: Jul 2, 2018

Still need a recipe for your July 4th BBQ?

Try this one.


Thai July on Corn
Makes approximately 20 pieces

4 corn on the cob, cleaned, washed, and sliced into 5 - 6 pieces
Ghee (clarified butter) and salt
Dang, or any crispy coconut chip

Tapenade
½ cup fresh garlic, coarsely chopped
2 jalapeno pepper, coarsely chopped
½ cup cilantro leaves
1 tablespoon lemon grass, tender part, sliced fine
1 teaspoon ginger, minced
1 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons brown rice vinegar
1/3 cup granulated sugar (can substitute coconut or date sugar, but the color is darker and not as vibrant green. Agave maybe, try stevia too.)

Place tapenade ingredients in a food processor and puree. Set aside in refrigerator. I thought this sauce was even better the next day – so it’s perfect to make ahead.

Brush corn with ghee (substitute regular butter) and sprinkle with a little salt. Grill a few minutes, turning to get some color on the corn. Serve each piece with a small slurp of tapenade and top with a coconut chip.

NOTE: If you don't want to make a tapenade, substitute with the new Zhoug Sauce from Trader Joes (spicy green herb sauce - Yemeni roots).

This food makes no sense. the sauce (it's not a glaze) is sitting on top of the cob, the inedible portion of the corn. So it doesn't flavor anything, and then when you turn it to the side to actually eat the corn, it falls off and makes a mess.
