From the Test Kitchen

Petite, uniquely-shaped Peruvian peppers lend a sweet and tangy pop of flavor to crisp green beans, served alongside smoky, spice-crusted salmon. For more Mexican-inspired flavor, we’re also pairing it with our take on elote, or corn smothered in layers of creamy sauce and crumbly Cotija cheese.

Prepare the ingredients:
1 Prepare the ingredients:

Fill a pot large enough to fit a corn cob with salted water; heat to boiling on high. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Remove and discard the husks and silks of the corn. Quarter the lime. In a bowl, combine the crema or sour cream and the juice of 2 lime wedges; season with salt and pepper to taste.

2 Cook the fish:

Pat the fish dry with paper towels. Transfer to a cutting board, skin side down. Cut into 2 equal-sized pieces; season on both sides with salt, pepper, and half the spice blend. In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil on medium until hot. Add the seasoned fish, skinless side down. Loosely cover the pan with aluminum foil and cook 4 to 5 minutes on the first side, or until lightly browned. Flip and cook 3 to 4 minutes, or until browned and cooked through. Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer to a plate. Cover with the aluminum foil to keep warm.

Heat the pan of reserved fond on medium-high until hot (if the pan seems dry, add a drizzle of olive oil). Add the green beans and 2 tablespoons of water; season with salt and pepper.

5 Dress the corn & serve your dish:

Evenly spread half the seaoned crema or sour cream onto the cooked corn cobs. Top with the cheese and as much of the remaining spice blend as you’d like.
