Green Goddess Elote with Shishito Peppers

10 Ears of corn, shucked
1 Lemon
2 Jalapeños
1 bunch Parsley
1 Egg yolk
1 Tbsp Olive oil
2 cups Grapeseed or other neutral oil
1 bunch Cilantro (for garnish)


  1. Heat your grill or grill pan to medium high heat. Place the corn and cook each side for about 5 minutes, rotating when you see the corn begin to get a little char. Set aside under a kitchen towel to stay warm.
  2. Cut the jalapeños in half lengthwise and remove the seeds. Place the peppers, cilantro and olive oil in a blender and blend until smooth (about 4-5 minutes on high speed).
  3. Place the egg yolk, mustard and lemon juice in a medium sized bowl and whisk. Slowly whisk in the neutral oil and blended mixture and continue whisking until evenly incorporated.

Roasted Shishito Peppers

10 Shishito peppers
1 Tbsp Olive oil
1 Orange, juiced
1/2 tsp Kosher salt
1 cup Queso fresco
  1. Cut each pepper in half and remove the seeds, then finely chop the peppers.
  2. Heat up oil in a large sauté pan and cook for about 5 minutes over medium high. Add salt and toss. Remove the peppers and deglaze the pan with freshly squeezed juice from the orange.


  1. Spread the Green Goddess dressing all over the corn. Sprinkle with peppers and follow with cheese and cilantro.
