Aug 1, 2012

Ingredients

  • 4 medium cobs fresh corn, husked
  • 1/4 tsp (1 mL) salt
  • 2 tsp (10 mL) finely chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) olive or canola oil
  • 1/4 tsp (1 mL) ground cumin
  • 1/8 tsp (0.5 mL) garlic powder
  • 1/8 tsp (0.5 mL) ground red pepper (cayenne)

Steps

  • 1
    Heat gas or charcoal grill. Carefully brush grill rack with canola oil. Place corn directly on grill over medium-high heat. Cover grill; cook 8 to 10 minutes, turning occasionally, until lightly browned on all sides.
  • 2
    Meanwhile, in small bowl, mix salt and cilantro; set aside.
  • 3
    In 8-inch nonstick skillet, mix 1 tablespoon oil and the cumin. Cook over medium heat about 30 seconds, stirring frequently, until fragrant. Stir in garlic powder and red pepper. Brush cumin mixture over hot corn; sprinkle with cilantro-salt mixture.

Expert Tips

  • Tip 1
    Variation: Serve the corn right off the cob, or scrape the kernels into a bowl and toss with a cup of cooked black beans and a little salsa.
  • Tip 2
    Substitution: Omit the cumin, and use fresh dill weed or basil leaves instead of the cilantro.
