Sweet & Spicy Corn on the Cob


Prep Time: 15 minutes        Serves: 4

What you'll need:

4 fresh corn, make sure to pick good-quality sweet corn and the silk on the corn should be pale in color and shouldn't look dried out

2 tablespoons butter (salted or unsalted), softened

2 tablespoons Super Mirchi hot sauce

Salt to taste


1.     Peel back the husks and remove the silk strands from each corn.

2.     Preheat a gas grill over medium high heat to about 450 degrees. Brush grill grates clean.  Once grill is preheated, place corn on grill, leaving space between them. Let grill (with lid closed) until charred on all sides, turning every few minutes, about 8 - 12 minutes total. Kernels should be tender when pierced with a paring knife. (Alternatively, if you don't have a grill, you can bake the corn in a preheated oven at 400 degrees for 10 minutes.)

3.     Transfer corn to a serving dish.

4.     In a small mixing bowl stir together butter and hot sauce. Apply evenly on the corn with a basting brush. Serve as a stand-alone or with another entrĂ©e.
