Corn with Lime Sage Butter

If you’re anything like me your refrigerator is full of fresh corn right now. So full that you may have to designate an entire shelf to it. Who can resist it’s sweet and succulent lure, not to mention rock bottom prices?!

Fresh, in-season corn can be eaten raw. It needs…nothing! And it doesn’t take much to dress it up a little. For this recipe fresh sage leaves are pan-fried in butter until crispy. If you never had sage chips before you’re in for a real treat. Be sure to taste test them.

Corn is cut from their cobs and sauteed in butter with the crispy, salty sage and then drenched in lime juice to finish. Bright and zesty with citrus and earthy hits of sage running through it makes this a delicious side for a Southwestern or Tex-Mex style meal.

It will liven up burgers, meatloaf, chicken, salads and even barbecue pork chops! I ate it spooned over chili. Talk about crazy good.
