Monroe county sweet corn
Last week we got the first of the locally grown sweet corn. Mrs. Crook, a local farmer, grows alot of things for me and last week was the first of the sweet corn. I grilled the corn in the husk and served it with a spicy cajun butter. Sales were brisk.
Also the Mahis mahi was a big seller. I had planned to use an Emeril Lagasse recipe, which includes a fussy pecan breading and a delicious piquant lemon sauce, but the fish truck got there too late and I didn't have time to get all the prep done, so instead I marinated the fish and served it topped with a lemon-crab butter with some fresh chopped dill. It was a lovely dish and probably nicer than Emeril's fussy one in some ways.
