  • 6 ears of corn, husked
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1 pound green beans, trimmed and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 bunch scallions, cut into 1/4-inch pieces
  • 1/2 teaspoon celery seeds
  • 3/4 teaspoon paprika


  1. Carefully slice kernels from corn using a sharp knife.

  2. Bring a large pot of water to a boil, and season with 1 tablespoon salt. Cook beans until crisp-tender, about 3 minutes; remove using a wire-mesh skimmer, and spread out on a baking sheet or plate to cool.

  3. Melt butter in a medium skillet over medium heat. Cook scallions and celery seeds until scallions begin to soften, about 5 minutes. Add corn and 1 teaspoon salt, and cook until heated through, 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in beans and paprika. Season with salt and pepper, and cook until heated through, about 2 minutes.
