I used to hate corn. My only positive memory of it comes from meals spent with my grandparents. My grandfather ate corn like it was going out of style. Anytime it was on the menu, he passionately devoured that cob of corn so ferociously that it was inevitable to spot one or two (or 10) kernels on his face… which was hilarious to 6 year old me. I think we even found kernels in his ear once. But even though I could see how much he loved corn, I still couldn’t understand why. My disdain for corn was matched by his love of it.
But as I grew up (specifically as my palate grew up) I learned just how delicious corn is. And let me tell you, this lime scented corn recipe is one of my absolute favorite ways to enjoy it. In fact, its one of my all time favorite recipes! It’s the perfect accent for my Blackened Pork with Lime Corn and Avocado Salsa recipe.
This recipe is all about the corn. I dont know how or why but this lime-scented corn side dish is crazy good. Like, it should be illegal how good it is considering how easy it is to make and how few ingredients go into it. And the blackened pork and avocado pico de gallo dont disappoint either. Every component adds a new spicy layer to an incredibly deep flavored dish. I guarantee that this Blackened Pork with Lime Corn and Avocado Salsa recipe will be a summertime fave.
