Macque Choux

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.

Serves 6

Prep Time 25 min

Total Time 25 min.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 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
  • 1 medium tomato, chopped
  • 3 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

Cooking Directions

Step 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.
