WebMD Recipe from EatingWell.com

Macque Choux (pronounced “mock shoe”) is a Cajun corn and vegetable sauté. Here we eschew the traditional bacon fat or butter for heart-healthy olive oil. Try it at your next backyard barbecue.

Ingredients
Prep: 25 minutes | Total Time: 25 minutes
  • 1 tablespoon
    extra-virgin olive oil
  • small onion, diced
  • 1/2 
    medium red bell pepper, diced
  • 2 cloves
    garlic, minced
  • 4 ears
    corn, kernels cut from cob (see Tip)
  • 1/4 cup
    water
  • medium tomato, chopped
  • scallions, sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon
    finely chopped fresh thyme, or 1/4 teaspoon dried
  • 1/2 teaspoon
    paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon
    salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon
    cayenne pepper, or to taste
Instructions
  1. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add onion and cook, stirring, until starting to soften, about 2 minutes. Add bell pepper and garlic and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes more. Add corn kernels and water and cook, stirring, until tender-crisp, about 5 minutes more. Remove from heat and stir in tomato, scallions, thyme, paprika, salt and cayenne.

 

Tip

Tip: To remove kernels, stand a cob on its stem end in a bowl and slice them off with a sharp, thin-bladed knife.
