:: Basil and Sweetcorn

March 11, 2009 at 10:31 am 9 comments

This is a repost of a recipe I posted last year, but I didn’t have a picture to accompany it at the time, so I think the impact might have been lost!  But here it is again just as tasty as last time but now with 100 percent more visual!

Basil and Sweetcorn
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 pretty 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.

Serves 4.
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!

    Hey—this corn looks awesome!I make a version of it myself but I’ve never tried it with basil (usually I use cilantro) so I will definitely give it a shot because I love basil.Do you currently live in Dublin or are you just originally from there?

    mmm, this looks so tasty! i’ve had a cold version of this with a squirt of mustard and olive oil – but yours is much more appropriate for the weather we’ve been having here.
