  • Fresh Kernal Corn or Tinned Sweet Corn – 2 whole kernel corn (15.25 oz) (no salt added) drained
  • Unsalted butter – 1 tablespoon

  • Paprika or Korean chili flakes pinch of oregano – 1tsp
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • White granulated sugar – 2 tbsp
  • Mozzarella cheese, shredded – 1 cup
  • 2 finely sliced green scallions


To begin, sauté the corn in a mixture of butter, mayonnaise, and a pinch of sugar to enhance sweetness. The mozzarella cheese is then sprinkled on top and allowed to melt over the corn.

Combine corn, butter, mayonnaise, spices, and sugar in a large cast-iron skillet/pan. Put the skillet to medium heat, stirring constantly until the butter has melted and the corn is thoroughly coated with the butter and mayonnaise.

Season with salt, pepper, and paprika or Korean chili flakes and toss to combine. Sprinkle the surface with cheese after the mixture is bubbling and heated. You may either cover the skillet with a lid or place it in the oven until the cheese has melted.


Place skillet in the oven. Preheat the oven to a low broil setting. Allow cheese to broil for 3-5 minutes until there is a crispy layer on top, or until the surface turns light brown, as seen through the oven door. Remove from the oven and top with scallions. Serve when still hot.
