30 seconds. Add the scallions and cook until softened, about 1 minute. Stir in the corn and capers and season with salt and black pepper.
4. In a large, nonstick skillet. heat 1 tablespoon of the oil until shimmering. Add 3 cauliflower steaks and
season with salt. Cook over moderate heat until lightly browned. about 3 minutes per side; transfer to a large rimmed baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining 1tablespoon of oil and 3 cauliflower steaks.
