Grilled Corn on the Cob

Grilled Sweet Corn on the Cob
Recipe type: Side Dish
Cuisine: American
Serves: 8
  • 8 medium ears corn with husks
  • 8 teaspoons olive oil
  • a few sprigs each of:
  • basil
  • rosemary
  • sage
  • thyme
  • lime wedges
  • 1 Cup mayo
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 2 Tablespoons lime juice
  1. Into 8-quart saucepot or kettle, place corn with husks and enough water to cover; let soak 15 minutes. (Soaking corn with husks in water keeps husks from burning on grill.)
  2. Remove corn from water and drain well. Gently pull back husks three-fourths way down; remove silk.
  3. With pastry brush, brush each ear of corn with 1 teaspoon olive oil. Tuck in several sprigs of herb next to kernels.
  4. Rewrap corn with husks, removing 1 strip of husk from each ear of corn and tying tops of corn with strip of extra husk.
  5. Place corn on grill over medium heat; grill 30 to 40 minutes, turning corn occasionally, until tender.
  1. To make the dipping sauce, blend mayo, chili powder and lime juice (one tablespoon at a time) until desired thickness is achieved.
  2. Serve corn with lime wedges.
