Recipe: Sauteed fresh corn

Recipe: Sauteed fresh corn

Sauteed fresh corn — one of many healthy recipes from Mayo Clinic.

Instead of bacon, this recipe uses prosciutto — a seasoned Italian ham — which has less fat and calories. If you prefer, substitute lean luncheon ham or smoked turkey for the prosciutto.


Directions

In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the prosciutto and saute until the meat is crisp, about 5 minutes. Stir in the corn, bell pepper and garlic. Saute, stirring occasionally, until the kernels are tender, 5 to 7 minutes. Serve immediately.


Ingredients
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1/2 cup prosciutto, cut into strips
  • 2 cups fresh corn kernels (cut from about 4 medium ears of corn) or frozen corn
  • 1 green bell pepper, seeded, cored and diced
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
