It’s the middle of the Summer and if you’re still cooking on the grill, excellent me too. Nothing satisfies the appetite more than grilled foods. I just love it. For one, cooking on the grill allows me to enjoy the outdoors plus it keeps the kitchen cool and not feeling like you just walked into an oven. The last thing we want is cooking in a hot kitchen don’t you agree?
One food that tastes amazing on the grill is Corn on the Cob. I will admit, cooking corn on the grill has it’s advantages too since you can grill it in different variations. How do you cook your corn on the grill? Do you shuck the corn or leave it with the corn husks on? Decisions, decisions. I know that many prefer to keep the husks on your Corn on the Cob but for this recipe, I decided to bare all.
Corn on the Cob is a must-have during the Summer months. Don’t you agree? For me, they go hand to hand and are a staple when you BBQ. Now don’t get me wrong, cooking corn on the stove taste just as heavenly, but grilling takes it to another level.
-And that is what I thought when grilling my recipe for Grilled Corn with Garden Fresh Herb Oil. Giving the ordinary corn some flavor.
For this recipe you will need:
Four Ears of Corn on the Cob
Extra-Virgin Olive Oil
One Garlic Clove (Grated)
Red Pepper Flakes
Garden Fresh Parsley
Lemon Zest and Juice
After you have shucked your corn, place them in cold water for 20 minutes. I found this hack time saving, and I totally recommend it. While your corn is soaking, preheat your grill to medium-high heat.
Next, take a small saucepan and heat your olive oil, garlic, and red pepper flakes over medium heat. Cook for about a minute. Remove your pan from the stove and add your garden fresh parsley, lemon zest, and juice. Stir well. Place aside.
Take your Corn on the Cob and put them on your grill. I have this handy dandy grilling basket for the grill, but you could also wrap up each corn with heavy duty foil. I’ve always found flipping the corn on the grill, gives it an evenly cook. Once your corn kernels are yellow and are gently brown, remove from the grill.
Brush your grilled corn with the Garden Fresh Herb Oil and enjoy this Summer favorite!
I will warn you, this grilled Corn on the Cob recipe has a kick to it and brings heat! You’re going to love it!
So tell me, how do you like your grilled corn?
