JAPANESE INSPIRED MISO BUTTER CORN SALAD

RECIPE: POLLY @MISS_POLLYS_KITCHEN
Directions

Remove the husk of both corn cobs. Set aside.

Prepare Miso Butter Glaze:

Whisk the butter, miso and honey together. Brush or spoon the buttery mix over the corn cobs, ensuring they are both well covered.

Prepare Corn:

Heat a large pan of a medium/high heat. Fry the corn cobs rotating until the kernels are slightly charred and cooked through. Season well with pepper. Spoon over some of the butter during the cooking process.

Place the cooked corn onto a plate to cool, pour over any remaining miso butter. Set aside.

Prepare Pickled Salsa:

Whilst the corn is cooking, mix the cucumber, red onion, peas, ginger and chives together in a bowl. Mix and set aside.

When the corn has cooled, using a sharp knife gently slice downward removing the corn off the cob.

Assemble Salad:

Ready a large platter, scatter over the bag of wild rocket. Spoon the cucumber salsa on top. Scatter the avocado around the platter and then spool the corn kernels over the top.

Pour half the dressing over the salad, then pour the rest into a serving ramekin. Garnish with the dill sprigs, micro greens and toasted sesame nori.
