For subtle flavor, garlic cloves are briefly sautéed in butter and then removed. The butter continues to cook until it’s nutty, browned, and rich—the perfect complement for fresh corn.
In a 12-inch skillet over medium heat, melt the butter with the garlic. Cook until the garlic is lightly browned, about 1 minute, and then remove and discard. Continue to cook the butter until frothy with brown flecks, 1 to 2 minutes.
Add the corn and 1/2 tsp. salt and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes. Stir in the chives and serve.
