Are you as excited as I am to see piles of corn creeping into the markets?
I mean, nothing screams summer better than corn on the cob and nothing’s tastier than grilled corn on the cob -- one of the most delicious vegetables EVER.
I'm not much of a vegetable fan, but corn on the cob is the exception. It’s delicious and simple (two must haves with my recipes!) it goes with any meal.
With a touch of sweetness, spice and garlic and the fact that it's grilled and not boiled, this recipe adds a tasty twist to regular corn on the cob.
PS – It goes great with Marinated Grilled Shrimp.
Grilled Corn on the Cob
5 cloves garlic, minced, or more to taste
1/2 cup butter
1 tablespoon white sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 lime, juiced
2 tablespoons hot pepper sauce
6 ears fresh corn
- Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat, and lightly oil the grate.
- Heat the garlic and butter in a small saucepan over low heat for 5 minutes to infuse the butter with the flavor of garlic. Do not let the butter simmer.
- Stir together the sugar, salt, black pepper, and cumin in a small dish. Stir into the butter mixture along with the lime juice and hot sauce until evenly blended.
- Brush the ears of corn generously with the garlic butter; reserve remaining butter.
- Cook the corn on the preheated grill, rotating occasionally until the corn is hot and tender, 10 to 15 minutes. Brush the corn with the remaining butter as the corn cooks.
