FRESH CORN ON THE COB:
Pour 2 tablespoons of water into a deep microwave-safe dish, big enough to fit your corn.
Add the corn, making sure it lays firmly against the bottom of the dish.
Cover the dish tightly with some plastic wrap, and poke a vent hole using a fork, allowing the steam to escape.
Cook the corn on high for about 5-6 minutes (add extra 3-5 minutes if the cob was frozen), or until is cooked through and turned bright yellow. If needed, poke a fork onto the kernels. The time will vary depending on the potency of your microwave.
Remove the plastic wrap and use tongs to remove the cobs from the dish and serve.
