I picked this recipe up while staying with my lovely Auntie Annie in Florida, and it’s a real discovery! The combination of Basil and sweetcorn works together to create a really interesting taste and a perfect side dish to grilled meat or chicken. The recipe itself is fairly straight forward but this one is definitely worth trying.
A Good Handful of Fresh Basil
4 Corn on the Cob (Fresh if available)
1 Tablespoon of Butter
A Good sprinkle of Salt and Pepper
In a large bowl, slice the the corn off the cob- if your using fresh, don’t bother straining any of the excess juice that comes out, it all adds to the flavour.
Chop the Basil roughly and put to the side. Place a sauce pan over a medium heat and add the butter until melted. Add the corn, toss, and then add the basil. Keep the mixture moving by stirring for about 3 Min’s.
Season with the Salt and Pepper and serve piping hot!
