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.

How to Make COCO MAIZE

Step-by-Step

  1. Cook corn in a water with salt added for about 15 minutes. I always cook mine with the husk as my family always did. Improves the flavor a lot.
  2. Make sure to cover tightly as you cook.
  3. In a saucepan, melt butter and pour in coconut milk then stir in the cream of coconut. Let it simmer for about 3 minutes and take it off the heat.
  4. Allow to cool and soak the corn in the mixture for about 10 minutes.
  5. Dredge the corn with the coconut shredded coconut flakes. Enjoy!
