Sweet and Smoky Corn Salsa

This is such a delicious way to use up the last of your summer corn. You can put in anything else that you have in your kitchen. Some green onions or bacon would make a nice addition. It’s good with tortilla chips or over a veggie burger.

Sweet and Smoky Corn Salsa

  • Corn from 3 ears, cooked and cut off the cob
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 2 sweet bell peppers (mine were orange), seeded and diced
  • Chipotle tobasco, to taste (I like many many many dashes in mine)

Mix all and refrigerate for 1 hour or more.

Mahi Mahi in parchment

Hubs and I recently committed to eating more fish, which for us means any. We’ve gone one step farther by declaring Monday Fish Night at our house. It doesn’t always happen, but I made this a few Mondays ago with much success.

Mahi Mahi in parchment

  • 3 Mahi Mahi fillets (I bought the frozen ones from Trader Joe’s – very good and inexpensive)
  • 2 bell peppers (I had one green and one orange), seeded and sliced
  • 1 small onion, sliced
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 clove garlic, pressed
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Heat oven to 375. Divide peppers and onions between 3 pieces of parchment paperĀ  (12X12″ squares). Place one fillet on top of each pile, then drizzle with lemon juice, olive oil, and sprinkle over garlic. Form a packet, place on a rimmed baking sheet, and bake for 9-15 minutes, depending on the thickness of your fillets.

What to do with CSA this week: 9/11/10

This week marks the last week for corn, but the first week for potatoes. Mixed emotions!

  • Sweet potatoes and white potatoes – I’m going to let these guys sit in the pantry this week. I’ve got a lot of food to eat that will perish before them.
  • Corn – To the freezer with you, to savor later in the fall
  • Bell peppers – snacking, cole slaw
  • Hot peppers – cole slaw, cornbead, omelettes
  • Carrots – I’m going to try to make some carrot bars or muffins. These are starting to pile up and I need to use a bunch of them in one shot.
  • Tomatoes – Roast for pasta
  • Apples – make sauce and/or freeze
  • Pears – These juicy delights are for snacking
