  • 1 Cup Shallots or Red Onion (Thinly Sliced Half-Moons)

  • 2 Tbsp. Grapeseed or Avacado Oil
  • Taste Flake Sea Salt

Directions:

  1. Soak corn overnight in saltwater solution if possible.

  3. If using stove top, boil cobs in saltwater for 10-15 minutes depending on cob size, or until cooked thoroughly. Remove from water with tongs and drain excess water. Quickly cool cobs in refrigerator or freezer until you can safely handle them without gloves.
