Coconut Creamed Corn with Cilantro
4 ears corn, kernels cut from cob
1 cup "lite" coconut milk
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
1Â tablespoon lime juice
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper (optional)
Combine corn kernels, coconut milk and salt in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil, then adjust the heat to maintain an active simmer. Cook, stirring occasionally, until most of the coconut milk has evaporated, 12 to 15 minutes. Stir in cilantro, lime juice and crushed red pepper, if using.
Tip: To remove kernels, stand a cob on its stem end in a bowl and slice them off with a sharp, thin-bladed knife.
