As silly as it sounds, I would have never thought to fry corn. Since steamed, boiled, and grilled are the more common preparations, I tend to gravitate toward those. But when I saw this recipe as part of the July Improv Challenge, I knew I needed to try out frying up some corn.
This recipe was so incredible I don't even want to waste any more of your time with random words. Lets just get right to the super short and sweet recipe!
Fried Sweet Corn with Basil Butter
- 3 cups corn kernels about 4 ears

- ¼ cup fresh basil leaves plus more for garnishing
