Wonderful, flavorful corn!! I made 1/4 of the recipe for the 3 of us last night for dinner. I served with (visiting DD's request) roast beef and mashed potatoes and gravy, so one ear per person was plenty for us. This is so easy and quick but really adds a great flavor to the corn. Thanks for the recipe. Made for 123 Tag Game.
Oh no! This is too good! I used frozen corn and reduced the recipe down to about one serving. It is easy and delicious. Even the frozen corn had a fresh taste that was not overpowered by the seasoning (which was just right). I will definitely try this next year with fresh corn. I am sure it will be out of this world!

<p>Hello all, being from California, I can honestly say I am a foodie. You can walk by construction workers here and hear them saying things like, So I used some fresh garlic and olive oil, then threw the rest into the pan to sautee. LOL I love all kinds of food, and trying to eat healthier as I get older, but still indulge in the occasional deep-fried food or sweet. <br />I LOVE this site! I have 3 or 4 other food sites such as Epicurious and Food Network, but I always come back here! The ease and all of the features just can't be beat. <br />Thanks Zaar and I look forward to participating more.</p>
