Lemon Fresh Fennel and Corn Skillet

Lemon Fresh Fennel and Corn Skillet recipe by Barefeet In The Kitchen

I quickly tossed this together the other night when I realized that I didn't have a side dish planned for our meal. It was just chilly enough outside I didn't feel like serving a salad. Fresh fennel and frozen corn were sauteed  just until crisply tender and then finished with a squeeze of lemon. The parsley gave it a lovely fresh twist and brightened the dish as well.

(printable recipe)

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 fennel bulb, washed and thinly sliced
2 cups of frozen corn, I used organic white kernels, but any variety should be good
kosher salt, to taste
freshly ground black pepper, to taste
2-3 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
small handful fresh Italian parsley leaves, chopped
Optional: freshly grated pecorino romano or parmesan cheese

In a large skillet, warm the oil over medium high heat. Add the fennel and corn and toss to coat. Saute until crisp and tender, about 6-8 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Add  lemon juice and toss to coat. Remove from the heat. If desired, sprinkle lightly with cheese immediately before serving.

  7. My wife Liz has opened my eyes to all the great uses of fennel, but we haven't done a combination of fennel and corn. Sounds great!
