Sautéed Fresh Corn

Photo: James Merrell

  • 8 ears corn on the cob
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Remove the husks and silk from the corn and cut off the kernels as close to the cob as possible. You should have about 7 cups of kernels.

Melt the butter in a large, heavy sauté pan over medium-low heat. Add the corn, salt, and pepper and sauté, uncovered, for 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until all the starchiness in the corn is gone. Taste for salt and pepper and serve.
