Basil and Sweetcorn

March 11

I picked this recipe up while staying with my lovely Auntie Annie in Florida, and it’s a real discovery! The combination of Basil and sweetcorn works together to create a really interesting taste and a perfect side dish to grilled meat or chicken. The recipe itself is fairly straight forward but this one is definitely worth trying.



  • serves Serves 4
  • time 30 mins


  1. 1. In a large bowl, slice the the corn off the cob- if your using fresh, don't bother straining any of the excess juice that comes out, it all adds to the flavour.
  2. 2. Chop the Basil roughly and put to the side.
  3. 3. Place a sauce pan over a medium heat and add the butter until melted.
  4. 4. Add the corn, toss, and then add the basil, keep the mixture moving by stirring for about 3 Minutes.
  5. 5. Season with the Salt and Pepper and serve piping hot!
