Ember Maque Choux

When you visit Lake Charles, LA, you expect to find Cajun cuisine and L'Auberge Casino Resort is no exception. Even at Ember Grille and Wine Bar, the facility's top-shelf steak room, you will find that touch of Cajun. In this case it was an excellent, mild Maque Choux.

Here's the recipe.
                                             L'Auberge Casino Resort
Ember Grille Maque Choux

2 cups fresh corn
1/2 TBS. shallot, minced
1 TBS. butter
1/4 cup cream
Salt and pepper to taste
1/2 TBS. chives
10 each heirloom cherry tomatoes, halved

Heat saute pan, add butter and saute shallots until translucent. Add cream and reduce by half.

When reduced, add tomatoes, chives, salt and pepper. Heat through and serve.
