Fresh, Fast and Frugal: Sautéed Corn with Onions

Sautéed Corn with Onions

One of the vendors at the farm market shared this simple recipe with me and I was eager to try it.

Sautéed Corn with Onions (serves 4)

  • 1 medium union, minced or chopped
  • 4 ears of corn, kernels removed
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon cooking oil
  • salt and pepper

Once the corn has been husked and washed, remove the kernels using a knife or a tool like this or this, and set aside.

Chop or mince a fresh onion. Melt butter and oil in a shallow pan over medium heat. Add onion and toss until it begins to brown, about 2-3 minutes. Next add corn and sauté for another 3-4 minutes. Season.

The vendor told me to add cream toward the end if my corn was less than fresh. But there was no need to; I'll try that another time.

I loved the way my kitchen smelled as I was preparing this side dish. I'd serve it with fresh-caught whitefish, or maybe with steaks from the grill.

I never knew how delicious sautéed corn could be! It has a roasted flavor, which I think suits this lovely golden season of waning summer. The days are dwindling down, but this simple side dish will carry us into September.
