Mexican Street Corn Salad
This is a delicious easy recipe to have in your salad repertoire. It’s the perfect accompaniment to any grilled meats, poultry or fish. The corn can be steamed or for a more robust flavor, steam roast the corn at a high temperature, either way it will be delicious.
6 ears corn
¼ cup finely chopped cilantro
¼ cup diced red onion
1 cup cherry tomatoes, chopped
1 large avocado, small diced
½ cup crumbled cotija cheese
2 tbsp fresh lime juice
⅓ cup mayonnaise
⅛ tsp smoked paprika, mild or spicy
⅛ tsp chili powder
Heat the Combi steam oven in the Steam mode 212 degrees or in the combination Convection Steam mode 400 degrees.
Steamed corn: place the corn cobs in the perforated pan and cook for 8 - 10 minutes until tender. Cool before removing the corn from the cobs.
Steam roasted corn: brush the corn cobs with some softened butter and sprinkle with kosher salt. Roast for 10 - 12 minutes until the corn begins to caramelize at the edges. Cool before removing the corn from the cobs.
Meanwhile, combine the cilantro, red onion, tomatoes, avocado and cotija cheese in a medium sized bowl. Mix the remaining ingredients in a small bowl and add a little sea salt and freshly ground pepper to taste.

Combi Steam Whole Fish
When steaming whole fish in the Combi-Steam oven, select the solid pan or use an oven-safe casserole dish. Then add the aromatics you wish to use to flavor the fish together with just enough water to cover the base of the pan and maybe even a splash of wine if appropriate. The cooking time will be a little longer than when fish is steamed over boiling water, but the succulent results are well worth the extra 8 - 10 minutes of cooking time.
Cooking the Fish
2 whole tilapia or striped sea bass, scales and fins removed
1” piece of fresh ginger, thinly sliced
2 scallions, thinly sliced into 2” long diagonal strips
1 lemon, thinly sliced
2 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp sesame oil
Serving the Fish
1 small red Jalapeno chili pepper, cut into very thin circles
2 scallions, thinly sliced into 2” long diagonal strip
4 tbsp sesame oil, heated
Heat the oven in the Steam mode, 100% Humidity, 212 Degrees
Pour about ¼ - ½ a cup of water into the solid Combi-Steam oven Pan.
Cut a few diagonal slits in the fish and place the fish in the prepared pan.
Place the lemon and ginger slices in the slits and put any remaining slices in the belly together with the scallions.
Pour the soy sauce over the fish then drizzle the sesame oil over the fish. Place in the oven and cook for 15 - 20 minutes until the fish flakes easily from the bone.
Place the fish on a platter and sprinkle the reserved scallions and chili pepper over the fish.
Heat the sesame oil until sizzling then pour it over the fish.
