Think it doesn't get any better than corn on the cob with butter? Try cooking the corn in butter (cut with a little olive oil to reduce saturated fat) with lemon and garlic and you may change your mind.

  1. 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.

Lemon on sweet corn tasted weird I would make this again, but next time leave out the lemon juice. Pros: Easy to make on the stovetop, and garlic and butter/olive oil was yummy Cons: Lemon, when added to a sweet vegetable like corn tasted a bit like lemonade and was a weird flavor.
