  • SERVINGS: about 2 cups
  • FAST
  1. 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  2. 1 tablespoon minced shallot
  3. 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  4. 2 1/2 cups fresh or frozen corn kernels
  5. 1/2 small red bell pepper, finely chopped

  1. Melt the butter in a large skillet. Add the shallot and garlic and cook over moderate heat, stirring until softened, about 1 minute.
