  • Spatula for mixing/flipping
  • Rimmed baking tray
  • Chef's knife
  • Pan
  • 10" Non-stick saute pan
  • Splatter screen (think wire mesh that you would put over a pan if you were making bacon)


  • 4 ears of corn
  • 2 tbsp grapeseed or avocado oil
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt


  • With your hands, remove and discard the entire husk from the corn along with as many strings as you can grab in 5 seconds.
  • Stand the corn up in the center of a baking tray and slice down each side with the chef’s knife to remove the kernels.
  • Heat the pan on the stovetop to high heat (7-8 out of 10).
  • Once hot, add the grapeseed oil.
  • Once the oil is hot, add the corn kernels and the salt.
  • Spread them out as evenly as possible on the surface of the pan and cover with the splatter screen.
  • Cook without touching for 2 minutes, then flip. Repeat 3 times until corn has cooked for ~8 minutes.
  • Transfer to a plate and enjoy!
