  • 1
    4 ears fresh corn
    Husk and clean the corn.  Keep the corn husks for corn broth.
  • 2
    1 clove garlic
    2 tablespoons jalapeño or serrano peppers
    1/2 cup red tomatoes
    3 tablespoons red onion
    2 tablespoons parsley
    Mince the garlic, red onion and jalapeno peppers.  Dice the red tomatoes and the parsley.
  • 3
    1 bay leaf
    Scrape the cobs with a large spoon or with the back of a knife to remove the juices or the "milk" as my granny called it.  (Save the cobs to steep in water with a bay leaf for corn broth for a later use.) 
  • 4
    1 tablespoon olive or canola oil
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    In a medium skillet, heat 1 teaspoon of the oil over medium-high heat.
     Add the corn and cook quickly until corn is crisp-tender, about 2 minutes.
     Add the garlic, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and the peppers.  Cook until fragrant,
    about 1 minute.  Remove from heat and let cool slightly.
