      Wow! What a different, unique way to serve corn. I have to admit, I was a bit apprehensive about the fish smell when making it really did stink up the house! I put it in a container and into the fridge until I was ready to use it! Out came the candles and, voila...smell gone! The end result was a very unique, tasting corn on the cob. As our peaches and cream corn are in full season, I will be doing this recipe again and again! I would highly recommend this recipe. Thanks for a wonderful posting
