So simple and delicious. We all liked it. We didn't have shallot so we skipped the step 2. We used a can of corn and it was still good but next time I'll try with frozen corn. Thanks Wi Cheesehead. Made for Zaar Star Game.

The family enjoyed this dish - plenty of flavour. We served it with the Oven Fried Garlic chicken (recipe 83561) and this was a good match.

As written, a little bland for our taste, but easily salvagable with the addition of a little more cayenne and some fresh herbs.
