Coconut Creamed Corn

July/August 2008

Your rating: None Average: 4.3 (34 votes)

Creamed corn goes tropical with coconut milk, cilantro and lime juice. We love this with the kick of crushed red pepper, but it's great without it if you don't enjoy spicy food. Try it with garlic-rubbed grilled flank steak and a vinegary Asian slaw.

The best creamed corn--and healthy

When I think creamed corn I think of that sloppy mess in a can we had to eat as kids (as another reviewer noted, "ugh." The use of coconut milk brings great flavor and a healthy component. That squeeze of lime is the perfect finish. I always make more than I think I will need because everyone wants more than they originally serve themselves.

easy, healthy

Looks like a winner.

I'm in the process of making this as part of my thanksgiving dinner. I just wanted to share that some may find it easier to remove the corn from the cob using a bread knife rather than a non-serrated knife (I felt I had more "traction" this way.)

Fresh and Unique Taste

I made this with canned corn and fresh lime juice in the middle of winter. It was such a delightful burst of flavor and felt really refreshing and yummy. Red pepper flakes added just the right zip to balance the sweet and tangy flavors.

Mmmm! The other reviews are right...this is so easy to make and delicious. It has a lot of fresh flavor for so little effort. I added the crushed red pepper, and it wasn't too spicy. The sweetness of the lime juice and the coconut milk cut any spiciness to just the right amount. Yum!

This is SO good and SO easy! I just use frozen corn, a can of Lite coconut milk & bottled lime juice (don't judge!!! I'm sure it's better with fresh, but sometimes you just don't have it!). IT'S DELISH! Even my semi-picky fiance is obsessed with it :) Def worth a try!
