Sauteed Corn with Mint, Butter, and Lemon

Susan from Food Blogga

Serves 2

If you'd like to turn this into a main meal, just add some sauteed shrimp or tofu.

2 medium ears of corn
2 teaspoons butter
1 teaspoon fresh ginger, minced
a pinch of cayenne pepper
salt, to taste
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon fresh mint, thinly sliced

Cut off the corn kernels.  In a large skillet over medium-high heat, melt butter. Saute corn for 2-3 minutes, or until lightly browned. Add the fresh ginger, cayenne, and salt, cooking 1-2 minutes more. The corn should be cooked through yet still firm. Add the lemon juice and mint; stir well, add a bit more salt, if necessary, and serve immediately.
