Coconut Corn Salad

Ingredients:

  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 4 ears of corn, shucked
  • fine grain sea salt
  • 3 tablespoons fresh thyme leaves
  • 1 cup (40g) big coconut flakes, well toasted
  • 1 cup (85g) sliced almonds, well toasted
  • 3 tablespoons chopped red onions
  • big squeeze of fresh lemon or lime juice

Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the corn, sprinkle with a couple pinches of salt and stir well, you want all the corn to be coated. Cook for just a minute, until the corn looses its raw edge, stir in half the thyme, and then transfer the corn to a large serving bowl.

Just before you’re ready to serve, add most of the coconut flakes, most of the almonds, the rest of the thyme, red onions, and citrus juice. Stir well. Taste, season with more salt, to taste, and serve topped with the remaining coconut and almonds.
