PREVIOUS: Bourbon Creamed Corn NEXT: Corn with Umeboshi Paste

Ingredients (4)

  • 3 large basil sprigs, stems removed
  • 1/2 stick unsalted butter, softened
  • Sweet corn, cooked as desired and left on the cob
  • Sea salt (we recommend Maldon)

Basic butter gets upgraded thanks to fresh basil and flaky sea salt. Generously spread this butter on corn for a simple yet sophisticated dish that truly epitomizes summer. Make a double batch and store it in the fridge for up to 2 weeks—it’s great spread on toast or tossed with farro.

Instructions

  1. 1Cut the basil into a fine chiffonade.
  2. 2In a small bowl, mash together the chopped basil and butter until well mixed (use a wooden spoon or flexible spatula).
  3. 3Roll the corn on the cob in the basil butter, and then sprinkle with sea salt.
