How To Grill Corn
  • fresh corn on the cob
  1. Preheat the grill pan or charcoal grill.
  2. Gently pull down the corn husk folding down but not ripping off. Remove all of the corn hairs and throughly rinse the corn.
  3. For simple grilled corn rub the whole corn on the cob with butter, sprinkle some salt and ground black pepper. You can also add any other spices you like. Wrap the corn cob with a few layers of the husk making sure it is covered on all sides. If need be use one of the husks to tie around and hold the enclosing husks around the corn. If choosing the Mexican optional toppings just clean and wrap the corn back up, the spices and toppings will be added at the end.
  4. Place the wrapped corn on a hot grill pan or charcoal grill. Grill/cook for 30 minutes or until the corn is soft. Turn the corn now and then to equally char on all sides.
  5. Once corn is soft peel back and discard the husk. Now you can season or spice as you like.
Optional toppings: butter salt pepper ground chile powder limes queso fresco or substitute with Feta Mexican sour cream or creme fraiche Grill pan or charcoal grill
