Grilled Corn Recipes

In many parts of Mexico, however, that crunchiness is highlighted with a creamy chile-lime sauce; this is more unusual than the tried, true, and unbeatable butter-salt-and-pepper combination, and only slightly more complicated. Just mix together mayonnaise, freshly squeezed lime juice, chile powder, salt, and pepper. It’s pretty authentic, and a combination that is easy to make.

Why do you soak corn before grilling?

Do I Need to Soak Corn Before Grilling? Yes, if you are grilling with the husks on. Soak for a minimum of 30 minutes, but I would recommend anywhere from 1-2 hours. This will allow the husks to soak in some of that moisture and lessen the likelihood that they will burn.

Should corn be boiled before grilling?

As long as you have ripe, sweet peak-season corn, blanching it in water (or a solution of milk and water) before grilling is not required at all. Your corn should be sweet and tender and perfect as-is.

How long do you grill corn?

Preparation: Preheat a grill to medium high heat (375 to 450 degrees Fahrenheit). Soak 20 minutes: Soak the corn cobs in cool water for at least 20 minutes to prevent scorching. Grill the corn: Place the corn directly on the grill grates and cook until the husk starts to blacken, then turn.
