This creamy, sweet, cheesy Korean snack or side dish is traditionally brought to the table bubbling away in a sizzling-hot dish, or it's made in an insert around the grill right at the table when dining at a Korean barbecue. It often relies on canned corn, but this version uses fresh sweet corn -- almost as quick as using canned and definitely delicious.



  1. Position an oven rack in the top third of the oven and preheat the broiler to high.
  2. Heat the canola oil in a large cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onions and bell pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables soften, 3 to 4 minutes. Add the corn and cook, stirring, until the corn is softened and browned, 4 to 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Set aside for 10 minutes.  
  3. Toss the corn mixture in a large bowl with the mayonnaise, sugar, 1 teaspoon salt and a few grinds of black pepper until well coated. Layer the corn mixture evenly back in the skillet. Sprinkle the cheese on top and broil until the mozzarella is bubbly and golden, 2 to 3 minutes. Garnish with gochugaru and sliced scallions if using.
