Mild winters aside, two of the things I miss most about living in California is having a backyard with a BBQ and getting a jump-start on summer’s first produce. This year I was lucky enough to spend the past month at my parents house in Napa. During that time, I shot photos for two cookbooks, disappeared into the mountains for a weekend, drank some beer, and did a lot of soul-searching.
This fire roasted corn salsa came together effortlessly as a side dish for my Carne Asada one night, and it quickly became a favorite condiment over the next few days. The sweetness of the corn is intensified by fire-roasting it, which also brings out some earthy popcorn-like flavors.
