Oceanaire Experiences

I've been meaning to blog about this for awhile now, but Wii got in the way. So, almost a month later, here goes.

My office Christmas party was at The Oceanaire Seafood Room. I don't eat seafood, but was assured by my bosses that they also had excellent steaks. They did. My filet mignon was one of the best I'd had. However, the caloric highlight of the meal was the plate of creamed corn we ordered as one of our sides. I could've easily eaten the entire plate meant to serve approximately 8 people.

When I got home, I did a quick search for a copycat recipe, and much to my surprise (and delight), I found one! Please, enjoy the recipe. And, if you're lucky enough to have an Oceanaire in your city, you need to try it out as soon as you can.

Oceanaire Creamed Corn
Recipe from RecipeGoldmine
Serves 8

2 quarts heavy cream
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons white pepper
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon nutmeg
3 to 5 pounds corn, fresh or frozen
1 leek, finely diced
Fresh parsley, chopped

Simmer the cream in an uncovered stock pot until it is reduced by half. Add salt, white pepper, sugar, and nutmeg. While the cream continues to reduce, add the corn and lower the heat. Bring the mixture back to a slight simmer while stirring occasionally. Add the leek and stir constantly until the pieces break down. Continue cooking the mixture until the corn is done and the desired consistency is reached. Garnish with freshly chopped parsley.

The 8 servings are completely misleading. It makes a crap ton! The average family would want to quarter this recipe. I halved it & it was too much. I also found it sweeter than I remember from the restaurant so I will cut the sugar by ~1/2 the amount if I do it again.
