While the corn is an obvious superstar, the things that make this recipe better are onions and garlic–FRESH! If you’ve only had the supermarket versions you’re missing out. Fresh garlic is in a completely different stratosphere, far more delicate flavor since it’s not dried out from all that shipping and storage time on a shelf. Seek it out at your farmer’s market, you’ll be convinced.
Hub threw a steak on the grill and voilà! Weeknight dinner on the patio.
