There are few things that scream "SUMMER" like grilled corn on the cob.
Grilled Corn on the Cob:
First - To avoid charring the husks, soak the corn in its husk for 30 minutes before grilling. Pull down the husks to expose the kernels and remove the silk.
Now - Season with salt and butter along with whatever else inspires you, then pull the husks back up before grilling.
Some flavorful options:
- Slather cobs with butter and ancho chile purée for a hot smoky flavor
- Try chili-lime butter - a mixture of butter, chili powder, lime and jalapeño.
- Try a mixture of honey, butter and cayenne pepper for a salty/spicy combination.
- How about some grilled “sweet” corn, mix brown sugar or agave nectar into the honey. (the caramelization adds a nice smoky sweetness to the corn)
- For a zingier cob, use a buttery conc
oction of mustard, horseradish, Worcestershire sauce and lemon pepper seasoning
