The other day I was flipping through my new All*You magazine and came across a picture of grilled corn topped with something that looked amazing! I quickly found the recipe, read it, and then had second thoughts. The ingredients were insane to me. Corn, mayonnaise, chili powder, Parmesan cheese and limes…you tell me, doesn’t that sound crazy/borderline gross!?! I’m the typical butter on corn kinda gal!…I think that my husband is crazy for putting peanut butter on his corn!
Anyway, after thinking about it for a while and gazing at the husks of corn that I had just bought the day before at the Farmer’s Market, I decided to give it a try for dinner. I was scared at first but I am SO glad that I did! Lover Boy and I LOVED IT!!!!
I know that this recipe sounds so odd but really it is such a fun twist on your usual corn on the cob.
I really hope that you can muster up the courage to give this a try! 🙂
Original recipe taken from June 2011 All*You Magazine, adapted by Gathered In The Kitchen
-8 ears fresh corn, with husks
-3tbs unsalted butter (I did not butter my corn)
-1tbs chili powder
-1/2c grated Parmesan cheese
-2 limes, cut into wedges
-Salt and pepper
1) Pull down corn husks and remove silk. Soak corn in cold water for 30 minutes (you can soak the husks to prevent them catching on fire when you grill)
2) Grill corn on gas grill on medium heat
3) While corn is hot spread with mayo, chili powder and Parmesan cheese
4) Spritz with fresh lime juice
