|photo by recipe author|
Preparation Time: 10 minutes
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil
- 2 cloves of garlic, minced
- 2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger
- 2 large ears or corn, husks and silks removed
- 1/4 cup water
- juice from 1 lime
- pinch of salt
- freshly ground black pepper
- 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
Heat the coconut oil over medium heat in a skillet. Sauté the garlic and ginger, stirring, for about 1 minute, until fragrant. Add the corn and sprinkle with the salt and pepper. Turn to coat with the oil, garlic and ginger. Pour in the water and lime juice, increase heat to medium-high, and cover. Cook for about 5 minutes, until corn is tender.
Remove the lid and continue cooking to allow the liquid to reduce to just a few teaspoons. Turn off heat. Brush the glaze over the corn and sprinkle with cilantro. Serve hot.
