Miso Butter Corn

The other day I went to Momofuku Noodle Bar for lunch with a friend.  They are constantly changing up the menu so it's always nice to go there every so often to see what they are serving that day.  On the menu was this corn dish sauteed in miso butter, it was served with scallions and roasted potato.  It was amazing, the miso butter gave the corn a great twist!  AFter devouring the corn I said to my friend, "I'm definitely going to try to recreate this at home one day very soon!"  It seemed pretty easy actually.  Miso, butter, corn, scallions, and potatoes.  Simple as can be!

I went for it.  I bought farm fresh corn at Whole Foods and also picked up some white miso paste, scallions and unsalted butter.  I dropped the potatoes from the dish because it was really the corn that I was after.  I couldn't care less about the potatoes.  Here are some photos of the process.

Miso Butter Corn (serves 4)

2 tablespoons unsalted butter at room temperature
2 tablespoons white miso paste
green parts of 2 scallions sliced thinly
4 ears of corn, kernels stripped

Combine butter and miso paste in a small bowl with a fork.  Place stripped corn kernels in a large saute pan, along with miso butter.  Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.  Saute on medium heat for about 3 minutes, add scallions, and cook for 2-3 more minutes.  Enjoy!

One night for dinner I had the corn with a simple grilled chicken breast.
The next day I had leftovers for lunch!  I saved this compartmentalized takeout container for this purpose, it's really a great alternative to a laptop lunch box.  Which someday I will buy for myself! I myself am organized and so why shouldn't my lunches be as well!
