A quick summer sauté of corn, ginger, garlic, cilantro and lime.


  • 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced scallions (white and light green part only)
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 1/2 cups fresh corn kernels
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger
  • 1 large garlic cloves, finely minced
  • 1/21 small jalapeño, seeded and finely minced
  • 2 tablespoons freshly minced cilantro
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • juice from 1/2 lime


  1. Add olive oil to a large sauté pan. Add the scallions and cook over medium heat for 2-3 minutes just until soft.
  2. Add the butter, corn, ginger, garlic and jalapeño. Cook 3-4 minutes until corn is warmed through and everything is just toasty golden in color.
  3. Add cilantro and salt. Stir and finish with a squeeze of lime juice. Serve immediately.
