This fresh corn dish is a Cajun favorite you won't see much outside of Louisiana. Every time I make this for people they love it. You can leave out the crawfish for a vegetarian side dish, or you can substitute fresh shrimp if crawfish is hard to find.

Used shrimp since a crawfish has never been seen in this neck of the woods and substituted sambal oelek for the cayanne. Served over brown rice. Nice balanced flavour. Will make again when fresh corn is abundant. Read More
