Simple Fried Corn Recipe
|Prep time||5 minutes|
This simple fried corn recipe is so popular! Every time I buy fresh corn on the cob, it’s inevitable that there are a few ears left in the bottom of the veggie drawer, forgotten and getting starchy. Here’s a fast sauté that will spiff up corn that’s not fresh enough to munch off the cob.
|4||ears corn (about 3-4 cups)|
|2||T||olive oil (light)|
|1⁄2||t||Adobo* (or salt) + 1/4 teaspoon additional|
*This recipe uses Adobo, a blend of salt and herbs. I think of Adobo as my “reach-for-it-anytime seasoning.” You can easily substitute salt for it, although the finished dish won't have quite the same flavorful punch. QQM Adobo starts with the best-quality salt—RealSalt™—and is hand-blended with select herbs. Check out Adobo in the QQM Store.
- Cut corn off the cob. Pour oil into large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. When oil is warm, add corn kernels. Sprinkle with ½ tsp. Adobo and sauté for 1 minute, stirring frequently. Turn heat to medium and cover for 5 minutes.
- Remove lid and stir in ¼ tsp. more Adobo seasoning and black pepper. Cook for 2 more minutes and serve.
