Ingredients

Scale
  • 8 ears corn on the cob
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • Fresh, chopped herbs, such as chives or parsley (optional)

Instructions

  1. Shuck the corn, removing husks and silk. Rinse and cut off the kernels from the cob.
  2. Melt the butter over medium-high heat in a large skillet. Add the corn and sauté, stirring frequently for even cooking, about 6 to 7 minutes. Taste for doneness; the corn should be cooked, but not mushy.
  3. When done, turn off the heat and stir in the salt and pepper. Serve with a sprinkle of fresh herbs.
