Hawaiian Street Corn with SPAM + Pineapple (gluten-free)


Hawaiian Street Corn with SPAM + Pineapple | www.thepigandquill.com |#glutenfree #summer #recipeHey guys, and welcome to Day Two of Street Corn Two Ways. It’s a pretty efficient series. Yesterday, we started things off with this classic Mexican Street Corn thingy and today we’re wrappin’ it on up with an islandy (I guess? For lack of better descriptor?) spin that’s sweet and salty and soy-y and scallion-y and best of all bests — SPAMMY.

*contended sigh*

SPAM is, no joke, one of my most favorite food groups ever. Like, remember that time I was like, “out with factory farmed meat!
Um, canni tell you a secret?
I never ditched the SPAM.
(Shhhhhhhhhh, fancy people think this blog is clean and legit and whole foodsie and stuff.)

Summer Street Corn Two Ways (gluten-free)

Street Corn Two Ways - Classic Mexican + Hawaiian with SPAM and pineapple | www.thepigandquill.com | #glutenfree #summerOk guys. Here it is: the post (or rather, posts) that’s officially gonna take your “waaaaaah it’s already August, Poopiecakes McBacktoschool” and turn it into “it’s peak sweet corn season beeeyahs, mah summer’s juuuuuuust getting started!!”

Because a summer without corn is just pool hair and ReddiWip.
Ear cuffs and Dippin’ Dots. Rollerblades and boy bands.
Oh, sorry, thought we were listing our fave childhood shit.
Are you still there?

The shameful thing is that corn actually isn’t all that commonplace in our house, even when it’s at the peak of candy-sweet, 10-for-a-dolla awesomeness. The simplest explanation would be that Chris is so neutral on corn that it breaks my heart a little each time he fails to give it even a passing glance. But really, it’s because corn in our house turns into, without fail, all the corn in my belly. Ever. Like six ears in one sitting and then it’s at least half an hour of “baaaaaaaaaaabe whydyoulemmeeatsomuch cooooooooooooooooooorn.” And then some corny bathroom comment, because together Chris and I have a combined age of, like, 11.

This season, though, I was lucky enough to find corn in our crisper more than once, and after seeing vendor upon vendor packing sweetly charred kernals of mayo-draped corn into tiny plastic cups along the Malecon, I kinda had to follow suit.

Steam-Grilled Baby Bok Choy with Sesame Soy Vinaigrette (vegan & gf)

I have a ritual when Chris goes out of town. It’s called Eating a Lot of Asian Veggies. Do I need to explain? Chris is probably the world’s best sport when it comes to eating veggies. Despite his “particular” eating habits that we’ve discussed before, he rarely turns his nose up at a vegetable. Unless … Continue reading
