No summer BBQ is complete without corn on the cob. It’s fun to eat, easy to cook, and can be the perfect compliment to almost any summer menu.
However, no one should have to settle for corn with butter and salt (even though that’s perfect in my book!). Here are some creative ways to add some volume to your corn ears! Wow. Sorry. 🙂
Basil Mint Pesto
Puree 2 garlic cloves and ¾ cup olive oil in blender. With machine running, add 1 cup packed fresh mint and ¼ cup packed fresh basil; puree for 1 minute. Brush corn with pesto; season with coarse salt.
Combine 2 teaspoons chili powder, 1 teaspoon ground toasted cumin and 1 teaspoon coriander seeds, and ½ teaspoon coarse salt. Brush corn with olive oil; sprinkle with spices.
Black Pepper and Thyme
Brush corn with olive oil. Sprinkle with 1 tablespoon fresh thyme; season with coarse salt and freshly ground pepper.
Combine 1 tablespoon finely grated lime zest (from 2 limes) and 2 teaspoons coarse salt. Brush corn with olive oil; sprinkle with zest mixture.
