Makes: 4

Prep time: 20 minutes

Cook time: about 5 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1-1/4 cups NatureBox BBQ Kettle Kernels
  • 1 teaspoon Cajun seasoning 
  • 2 pinches cayenne pepper (optional, for spiciness)
  • 1 ear fresh corn, shucked 
  • 1 green onion, sliced thinly
  • 1 lemon, cut into 8 wedges
  • 8 corn tortillas
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 pound cod fillet, sliced into 3-inch sticks
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 bunch cilantro
  • 1 avocado, sliced thinly

Directions:

1. In a food processor, grind the Kettle Kernels with Cajun seasoning until it resembles corn meal. Pulse in Cajun seasoning and cayenne pepper, if using. Add mixture to a shallow bowl or plate and set aside.

2. Over high heat, quickly saute the fresh corn with green onion. Season with salt and pepper, to taste and a squeeze of lemon. 

3. Warm the tortillas by passing them over a stove burner set on low heat till they blister and soften. Cover the tortillas with a warm towel. 

4. Crack the egg in a small bowl and whisk with 1 tablespoon of water. Dredge fish sticks into egg and then dip into the Kettle Kernel mixture. Gently place the coated fish sticks on a plate.

5. In a nonstick skillet over medium high heat, heat olive oil. When the pan is hot, add in 8 fish sticks at a time and saute until golden brown and cooked through, about 5 minutes. 

6. To serve, place 2 fish sticks on a tortilla and top with 2 tablespoons of fresh corn. Layer on 3 slices of avocado and a sprig of cilantro. Serve with a lemon wedge and enjoy!
