This wonderful salmon recipe with hominy comes from Moveable Feasts:


  • 1 cup white corn hominy
  • 1/2 onion
  • water
  • 4 scallions, sliced
  • 1/2 red pepper, diced
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • Olive oil and 1 tablespoon butter


*The hominy would be heavenly fried with some bacon too. (Naughty me!)
*Because this post is all about hominy, there’s no recipe for the salmon here; use your favorite fish and your favorite way to prepare it.


  1. Bring a pot of water to boil, add some salt, the 1/2 onion and the hominy. Simmer for about 1 1/2 hours. I found two hours was too long; the hominy starts to break down. Take a piece to test; it should be similar to the texture of a lima bean. Drain and remove the onion. You can cool at this point and refrigerate.
  2. Add some olive oil and a little butter to a frying pan. Add the hominy, the green onions, the garlic and red pepper. Lower the heat and fry until everything is golden brown. Serve under fish or meat.
