Tammy McAfee


Culinary Resource Coordinator at Central Market Poulsbo

Tammy started dinner-party clubs in the late 1980s with other couples where the goal was to cook new types of food, enjoy an evening with friends and get some feedback. She is passionate about finding new ingredients and products to experiment with – guilt free! Her favorite aspect of the Resource Center is introducing customers to simple concepts – “It’s empowering for those who didn’t grow up cooking to learn some techniques,” she said. 

What better way to harness the sweet 'n' crisp flavors of cut summer corn and fresh plump blueberries than prepping and serving over grilled halibut or salmon fillets? Also works nicely as a beautiful side dish at the barbecue.

Featured Tips

Make sure your basil is freshly picked and your lime juice is freshly squeezed!

  • 5 ears corn
  • 1 small sweet onion, sliced into 1/4-inch thick rings
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, finely diced

Directions

Heat grill to medium-high.
Brush corn and onion rings with olive oil. Grill over direct heat, turning

Shave corn kernels from cobs with a sharp knife, breaking up any clumps that stick together. Dice onion rings and mix with corn in a bowl.
Add red pepper, blueberries, lime juice and olive oil to bowl. Combine everything and season lightly with salt and pepper.
Just before serving, finely chop basil leaves and toss with corn relish.
