A nice tropical twist on the traditional side dish. This Caribbean Corn is quick and easy to make, and is perfect for a summer BBQ, picnic, or pool party.
I love the mixture of flavors in this sauce. Sweet pineapple juice, salty soy sauce, fresh green onions. It all mingles really well together. You’ll love this family friendly dish.
corn that you cut off the cob
I recommend using fresh corn that you cut off the cob for this dish. It makes it nice and fresh. To cut corn off the cob, hold an ear with one end resting in a large bowl to catch all the corn kernels and juices.
Using a sharp knife, slowly slice down the ear, removing the top two-thirds of the kernels, but leaving the base of the kernel attached to the cob. Then, using the dull side of the knife, press down the length of the ear to push out the rest of the kernel and the milk.
Or frozen corn
If cutting fresh corn off the cob seems like too much work, or you can’t find fresh ears of corn, frozen defrosted corn will also work.
Which makes it really simple and easy to make this fun side dish!
Want it to be vegan?
This could easily be made vegan by using a plant-based milk rather than skim milk. Almond or coconut milk would be my choice for a great vegan alternative.
