Huitlacoche Salmon

Huitlacoche. Known to many farmers as corn smutt, huitlacoche has long been used in Mexican cooking. The Aztecs used this Mexican truffle in many meals too. Huitlacoche, also spelled cuitlacoche, has a smoky corn flavor. It is a fungus that grows inside kernals of corn when weather conditions are just right. We have coated the seared salmon with this interesting ingredient and serve it with a buerre blanc. Its a great spring dish.
