This is a summery side, perfect for when corn is at its peak, but it’s also great with canned or frozen corn when you want to evoke summer in the dead of winter. Quite simply, it’s a tasty and easy way to amp up corn and turn it into a showstopper.
Basil Parmesan Corn Medley has a bit of a Mediterranean air with pine nuts, basil, and Parmesan cheese. Though it would make a fine side for an elegant company’s over meal, it also works as a side for simple down-home pork, chicken, or fish meals (or add it into pasta for a unique twist). I serve it as a side for rotisserie chicken, Italian Pork Chops, Parmesan Chicken, and salmon fillets. It’s a great way to shake things up and take your corn from boring to wow.
