Sautéed Corn

Ok, this should be the last post on corn for the season. I remember when I was younger, my paternal grandmother cooking some corn for me. I just loved the nicely browned kernels, and the combination of sweet and salty. My grandmother passed away years ago, and I wasn't especially close to her, so I don't know the recipe. I can only guess there was soy sauce or fish sauce involved. I don't know if she added sugar, or if it was just the sweetness of the corn. Anyway, I recently started to make my own version of her dish. I have seriously been eating this every week since corn has been in season.


Sautéed Corn
This is so easy and there are only 5 ingredients. Sometimes, I also throw on eggs for an omelet, making it a perfect breakfast, lunch, or even dinner! I've only used fresh corn for this dish, but I may try to use my own frozen kernels in the winter.

corn kernels, from one ear
salt, to taste
red pepper chili flakes (optional)
green onion, sliced thinly

Heat oil in a pan (medium-high).
Add corn kernels and cook until they start browning.
Season with salt and red pepper chili flakes.
Throw in the green onion until soft.

I love corn so much, I've been known to eat it straight from the can. :P

Corn is so delicious right now when in season! I like how simple you make this dish. Not just corn by itself like what I would do for a camping trip but also some extra flavor components. Yum!
