Grilling Corn Quickly

Grilling corn gives it that final ‘umph’ before it hits your plate! It goes very well with any grilled meat and is delicious removed from the cob and made into salad, salsa or even quesadillas.

What I do is bring a large pot of water with some brown sugar to a boil. I then remove the corn form the husks and add it to the boiling water. I then let it cook for about 5 minutes.

While the corn is cooking I melt some butter in the microwave and season it generously with coarse salt and freshly ground pepper. I remove the cooked corn from the pot and place it on a baking sheet and brush it with the melted butter. Feel free to add any herbs and to the butter as well. Things such as curry powder, paprika, cumin, chili powder, oregano or dried thyme. You only need a little bit so don’t go nuts!

Generally, the grill is on when I grill corn because, as I said, I make it as a side for grilled meat. So I place the corn on the heated rack and lower the heat to medium.

Keep an eye on it and flip it as it gets brown and caramelizes.

Once it is grilled on all sides move it to an unlit side of the grill or simply remove it. The corn will be ready fast, maybe a total of 5 minutes, so cook it as the rest of your grilled food is just about ready. Serve it with extra butter and enjoy!
