This easy recipe for shrimp with corn and herbs is the perfect end of summer supper! And it’s ready in 10 minutes – what could be better?


  • 4 tablespoons really good butter
  • Kernels from 4 ears of corn
  • 1 pound shelled shrimp (cut into one inch pieces if they are really big)
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced fresh basil or thyme
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste


  1. Melt butter in large frying pan. Add corn and shrimp and stir-fry until shrimp is cooked through, about 3-5 minutes.
  2. Stir in herbs and season to taste with salt and pepper.
  3. This dish is perfect as is, but if the mood strikes me I have been known to mix in some crumbled feta cheese, or to grate some fresh Parmesan on top. You should experiment, too!
