  6. 1/2 teaspoon kosher or sea salt

  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to boil. Fill and large bowl with ice water and set aside.
  2. Add the corn to the boiling water. Boil for 1 minute. Drain, quickly rinse under cold water, and then put the corn into the ice bath until fully cooled off. Drain.
