Grilled Corn

July 22, 2013

Summertime has a distinct feel, it isn’t just about the heat it’s about a joyful atmosphere that brings people together whether it’s to have cocktails on a rooftop bar, gather around a barbecue surrounded by smokey aromas or lounge by the pool soaking up the sun. Everyone is talking about their favourite grilling recipes and it’s about time I shared this one with you – grilled corn on the cob is delicious and super easy. My dad loves corn all year round and this recipe is a winner because the charred flavour of freshly grilled corn combined with Mexican inspiration makes for the perfect bite every time.

This recipe can also work for a barbecue but if you are using your griddle pan don’t be afraid when you see some smoke taking over your entire kitchen, and don’t get worried when the corn kernels begin to look black, you are not having a culinary disaster by burning your food, on the contrary you are having a moment of culinary magic because those burnt looking parts are the tastiest.
