Ingredients

  • 3/4 teaspoons salt
  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • 1 cup fresh corn kernel
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
Roasted Red Peppers:
  • 3 sweet red peppers
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon white wine vinegar
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 8 fresh basil leaves thinly sliced

Method

Roasted Red Peppers: Broil red peppers, turning often, until charred, 15 minutes. Let cool. Peel off blackened skins. Core, seed and thinly slice; place in small bowl. Sprinkle with oil, vinegar and salt; toss. Stir in basil. Set aside.

In large saucepan, bring 4 cups (1 L) water and salt to boil; reduce heat to low. Gradually whisk in cornmeal; cook, stirring often, for 10 minutes.

Add corn; cook until tender-crisp and polenta is thick enough to mound on spoon, 5 to 10 minutes. Stir in cheese. Spread in greased 13- x 9-inch (3 L) glass baking dish. Let cool until set, about 30 minutes.

Cut polenta into 12 squares. Place on greased grill over medium heat; close lid and grill, turning once, until marked, about 8 minutes. Serve topped with red peppers.
