  1. 1 tablespoon butter
  2. 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  3. 2 cloves garlic, minced
  4. 4 ears corn, husked
  5. 1/3 cup water
  6. 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  7. 1/4 teaspoon salt
  8. 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper


Heat butter and oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and cook, stirring, until fragrant but not browned, about 1 minute. Add corn, water, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Cover and cook, gently shaking the pan occasionally to turn the cobs, for 5 minutes. Uncover and continue cooking, turning the cobs occasionally, until all but a few tablespoons of liquid has evaporated, 2 to 4 minutes more. Serve the corn drizzled with the lemon-garlic pan sauce.
