When it comes to cooking peak-season corn, less truly is more. This quick and easy side dish has you sauté plump corn kernels with butter, and temper their sweetness with a sprinkle of assertive cracked black pepper and nutty Manchego cheese.
Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add corn and 3/4 teaspoon pepper; season with salt. Sauté, stirring occasionally, until corn is crisp-tender, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in cheese. Serve immediately, sprinkled with more cheese and pepper.
