Basil Steamed Corn

So how many of you make corn by just steaming it?  I thought so.  No offense to the basic steamed-cron-with-butter-salt-and-pepper, but every now and then, that corn needs something!  I have come up with the solution--steamed corn with lemon, basil and garlic!

Basil Steamed Corn

Serves 4

1 pound frozen corn
3 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons fresh basil, chopped (can substitute 1 tablespoon dried basil)
1 clove garlic, mashed
1 teaspoon lemon juice
Salt and pepper
  1. Put everything in a pot.
  2. Steam until corn is done.
  3. Season to taste.
This can be made for corn on the cob too--just softened the butter and add the rest of the ingredients until blended through (you will need to add salt and pepper to the butter itself); slather on fresh, steamed corn on the cob!
