Recipe by Ambrosia 2009

A really simple side dish which originates from the Caribbean. My Guyanese husband introduced it to me whilst we were visiting Guyana and this is my adaptation of it. It has become a firm favourite. It's a good recipe to experiment with, changing quantities and types of herbs and spices. Low fat coconut milk can be subsituted for the full fat.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Shuck the corn, wash, and chop off each end.
  2. Add the herbs/spices to a saucepan with the coconut milk and simmer the corn gently in it for around 10 minutes until the sauce is thickened and the corn is tender. Spoon the sauce over the corn and serve speared onto corn forks or toothpicks, or prepare for messy fingers! Spoon up any leftover sauce.
