From the back package of a bag of Pictsweet brand frozen corn kernels. I enjoy finding recipes serendipitously! In summertime, try this using fresh corn! I'd also be inclined to add a few slices of red onion if the mood struck me.

This was awesome. I used fresh sweet corn and fresh tomatoes from the garden and just warmed them with the sauteed pecans. Made for CQ 2014.

I loved this recipe. The pecans intrigued me and made this simple dish elegant and different and "roasty"! I did saute fresh corn in my cast iron skillet and added a little of the corn milk by scraping the corn cob. Thanks for posting! made for Culinary Quest 2014!
