This is an incredibly easy dish my mom would make for every holiday dinner and I love it! Once you taste it you'll never mess up corn with butter ever again. Adding fresh mint and basil really brings out a freshness and it accompanies our other holiday sides like savoury quinoa stuffing and roasted sweet potato kale salad really well.
ingredients (makes 4 servings):
3 to 3 1/2 C frozen corn (approx. 1 regular sized bag)
1 tbsp grapeseed oil
1/4 C shallot, finely chopped
1/2 C basil leaves, finely chopped
1/2 C mint leaves, finely chopped
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp ground pepper
Heat a pan to medium-high heat and cook corn in grapeseed oil for 4-5 mins. until it starts to get some browning on it. You'll want to stir it infrequently to let the caramelization of the corn happen. Then once you see some colour on the kernels add in the chopped shallot, sea salt, and pepper and cook for another 2-3 mins. Add in the herbs and stir around and cook for another 1-2 mins. Serve immediately.
