Sweet Corn

  • corn kernels

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 tablespoon chopped ginger

  • 1 teaspoon chopped chilli

  • 1 handful chopped fresh parsley

One of the things I love to do is to stir-fry the corn kernels in a hot wok or frying pan with 2 tablespoons of olive oil, a tablespoon of chopped ginger, a teaspoon of chopped chilli, a handful of chopped fresh parsley and a couple of tablespoons of low-salt soy sauce. You can vary the flavours with different herbs, but this is a good base to start with.

Method

Sweetcorn is a great vegetable – most people love it. Full of Vitamins A and C, it is not only tasty but extremely good for you! I'm not averse to using a bit of tinned sweetcorn sometimes, as it does taste OK, but I'd like you to buy some corn on the cob and have a go at removing the kernels of corn yourself. It's very easy; just tear the husk off, then run a knife downwards to remove the kernels – it's definitely worth doing this to experience the sweetness and vibrancy of flavour. Sweetcorn is best served simply. It is massively in love with butter, has tendencies to flirt with the chilli family and loves a bit of bittersweet orange zest...

BUYING SUSTAINABLY SOURCED FISH

Close

Buying sustainably sourced fish means buying fish that has been caught without endangering the levels of fish stocks and with the protection of the environment in mind. Wild fish caught in areas where stocks are plentiful are sustainably sourced, as are farmed fish that are reared on farms proven to cause no harm to surrounding seas and shores.

When buying either wild or farmed fish, ask whether it is sustainably sourced. If you're unable to obtain this information, don't be afraid to shop elsewhere – only by shopping sustainably can we be sure that the fantastic selection of fish we enjoy today will be around for future generations.
