"As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy, and to make plans."--Ernest Hemingway

Directions:
Preheat the grill or grill pan over medium-high heat.
Bring a large pot of water to boil. Add the corn and bring the water back to a boil, about 3-4 minutes. Remove the corn from the water and let cool. When cool enough to handle, cut the corn off the cob.
In a small bowl, whisk the greek yogurt, lime juice, and water together until smooth.
Brush the grill or grill pan with canola oil and grill each polenta square about 2-3 minutes on each side, or just until grill marks appear. As they're finish, transfer the polenta squares to a serving platter.
Top each grilled polenta square with a small spoonful of corn, a dollop of lime yogurt, a few crumbles of queso fresco, a light dusting of cayenne and smoked paprika, and a pinch of micro greens.
