Total time: 
Serves: 4
Take something wonderful like summer corn, and let it shine with minimal fuss.
  • 6 ears of sweet corn, shucked and rinsed
  • 1 teaspoon coarse sea salt
  • 8 leaves of fresh basil, thinly cut
  1. Prepare a large pot of boiling water. Place the corn in the water and let it simmer for 3 to 4 minutes. Do not overcook the corn. Using tongs, remove the corn from the water and allow it to cool at least until it can be handled.
  2. Hold each ear of corn vertically over a plate. Using a very sharp knife, cut the corn from the cob. Put the corn in a serving dish and mix in the sea salt and the basil just before serving. Enjoy!
