so-good miso corn

In peak corn season, I’m always looking for fun things to do with the ears I bring home from the market. This So-Good Miso Corn went over well here, especially with the guy in the house who prefers his corn to be cut from the cob. Fresh kernels are sautéed with butter and miso and sprinkled with za’atar and cayenne. On paper, it kind of seems like a mash-up of flavors, but I used a very light miso and it all worked nicely. Dorie suggests a variation with seared squid to make it into more of a main course…while I wanted to keep the corn as a side dish, she did spark an idea. I have a packet of dried shredded squid, a sweet and savory snack that I got at a local Japanese market, and put a little floof of it on top of the corn.

For the recipe, see Everyday Dorie by Dorie Greenspan, and head over to Cook the Book Fridays to see all of our beet bowls this week.

  1. This is so pretty! I’ll do one or the other of the flavours next time – both my za’atar and miso were quite strong so it was muddled. But I love the idea and I am always looking for things to do with corn too!

  2. I’m impressed with your creative touch adding the dry squid, of all things. My family loves the dry squid for snacks.

  3. Looks like an inviting dish. These mash up of flavors didn’t work for us but it was still fun to try.

  4. What a pretty photo. I didn’t even know there was a dried squid product on the market. This coming week I am going to post a two-fer because I didn’t get the corn made last week. So because of Shrley’s post, I decided to add the Squid which I had never cooked with before. I grew up in Iowa. When you look around, there is no water in sight in that state. We were land-locked. Squid wasn’t on the table nor even a thought. Since I bought 16 ounces of ‘tubes and tentacles’ I think I have a lot of calamari meals in my future.

    • i grew up in VA but i don’t think i had squid growing up, not even the delicious fried kind! haha
