Corn with Browned Butter

Wow! I tried this yesterday and it is great.

6 ears of corn or 3-4 cups frozen corn
4 Tbs butter
1/4 C grated hard cheese [Parmesan, Romano, etc.]
2 Tbs chopped parsley

If using fresh corn, shave the kernels off the cob.
Over medium heat, melt the butter until it has a deep brown color and noticeably nutty aroma, about 3-5 minutes.
Add the corn, stir a few times and turn the heat to medium low. Cover and cook for 5 minutes, stirring once or twice.
Stir in cheese and parsley, add salt to taste.
