  • Corn kernels, fresh or frozen

Recipe Notes

  1. Cut fresh corn right off the cob for best results. If fresh corn isn’t available, I recommend using frozen corn. You can add the frozen corn right to the skillet to char. No need to thaw.
  2. I recommend using a cast iron skillet. If using stainless steel, be sure to add a little oil to the skillet before adding corn to avoid sticking.
  3. Spice up the corn with your favorite seasoning like chili powder, paprika, cumin, etc.. Experiment with different spices to change things up!
  4. Store in the refrigerator for 5-7 days
