Ingredients

  • 4 ears corn
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil if cooking without husk
  • salt to taste
  • Butter, lime wedges and chopped parsley, for serving optional

Instructions 

  • Preheat the grill to medium high heat.

Method 1: Grilled corn on the cob with husks on:

  • Peel back the top part of the husk and remove the silks to prevent them from catching on fire on the grill. Rub the corn with the olive oil and season with salt, to taste, then pull the husk back over the corn to cover.
  • Cook for 15 minutes, over medium high heat, turning every 3-4 minutes to cook on all sides.
  • Shuck and serve!

Method 2: Grilled corn cooked in foil:

  • Shuck the corn and coat with olive oil and salt, to taste. Cover in foil and cook for 15 minutes, over medium high heat, turning every 3-4 minutes to cook on all sides.
  • Remove foil and serve!
  • Method 3: Grilled corn without husk or foil
  • Shuck the corn and coat with olive oil and salt, to taste.
  • Cook for 12-16 minutes, over medium high heat, turning every 3-4 minutes or until well charred and cooked on all sides.
  • If the corn is cooking too quickly, reduce the heat to medium.
  • Serve corn on the cob warm with fresh lime juice, a pat of butter and freshly chopped parsley if desired. Enjoy!

Notes

  • Nutrition information does not include butter, lime or herbs as those ingredients are optional.
  • If grilling the corn in foil, you can omit the oil and brush the corn with melted butter if desired.
  • Change things up by seasoning your corn with your favorite spices or rubs, butter, herbs or pesto sauce!
  • Rub the corn with a paper towel to remove stubborn silks.
  • Use pre-shucked corn for methods 2-3 to save time.
