Maquechoux means smothered with corn in cajun. For the corn, you can use frozen, canned...whatever you have.

My husband is from Lousiana is also a cook, so I thought I try this one. Recipe is easy to follow. Looks & smells grate however, we did not like the dish. I think it's the clash of corn with tomato & consistency. Interesting recipe thou. It's always fun to try something new.
