Simple Pan Fried Corn


Serves 4 (as a side)

Prep time: 10 mins

Cook time: 6 mins



Heavy skillet



2 ears of corn on the cob

¼ cup sweet peppers diced

1tbls olive oil

1 tbls butter

1 clove garlic roughly chopped

1 shallot (or small onion) diced

¼ cup celery diced

Salt and pepper to taste

Chili flakes to taste



Place skillet on stove on high heat.  While the pan is heating, remove the kernels from the corn cob. When the skillet is slightly smoking, add olive oil and butter (the olive oil keeps the butter from burning).  Add the garlic to the skillet and stir until you can smell the garlicky smell.

Add all the ingredients and toss.  Let the ingredients cook for three minutes without stirring (this will caramelize the sugar in the corn and onions).  Add salt, pepper and chili flakes to taste. Stir again and allow to cook for three more minutes.

Remove from heat and serve.
