  • Remove the husks from the corn.
  • Put the corn on a plate and microwave for 10 minutes. Alternatively, bring a pot of water to a boil and boil the corn for 10 minutes. Both methods work!
  • Heat a grill pan until hot. Test the pan is hot by sprinkling some water on it. If it sizzles, the pan is hot. Place the corn on the grill pan and grill until you get those nice grill marks on every side. It should take ~10 minutes per corn. Place corn on a plate.
  • Add green onions to a small bowl. In a sauce pan, heat neutral oil until it starts to bubble (meaning it’s hot). Pour oil over the green onions. You should hear a sizzle as the oil hits the green onions.
  • Spoon the green onion oil over the grilled corn. You can use as much or as little as you want.
  • Optional: Sprinkle fried shallots on top.
