COCO MAIZE

Sweet childhood memories helped me create this recipe. I grew up on the Atlantic coast. Used to seafood and a lot of delicious meals made with coconut and corn. Street hawkers served cooked corn with chunks of coconut meat (the meaty part of the coconut) I recreated this adding more flavor and character to the snack.
This is absolutely delicious and I guarantee you would love it. Enjoy my tropical paradise.
