Number of Servings: 4


    2 Tbs. unsalted butter
    1 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil
    3/4 Cup thinly sliced scallions
    Kosher Salt
    2 Heaping cups of corn
    2 Tbs. fresh minced ginger
    2 to 3 tbs. minced garlic
    Scant 1 tsp. of minced serrano chile (if you can't find this at the grocery store, just substitute a hot pepper of some sort)
    2 Tbs. Chopped fresh cilantro
    1/2 lime
    Freshly ground black pepper

    *I copied this recipe from a fine cooking magazine.


Melt 1 tbs. of the butter with the olive oil in a 10-inch saute pan. Add the scallions and 1/2 tsp of salt and cook, stirring occasionally, until the scallions are soft and lightly browned, about 3 minutes.
Add the remaining 1 tbs. of butter and the corn, ginger, garlic, serrano, and 1/2 tsp of salt. Cook, stirring frequently and scraping the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon, until the corn is tender (3-4 min).
Remove the pan from the heat, add all but about 1/2 tbs of the cilantro, a good squeeze of lime, and a few generous grinds of pepper. Stir and let sit for 2 min. Season to taste with more salt, pepper, or lime. Serve warm, sprinkled with the remaining cilantro.
