Charred Corn with Lime Juice and Parmesan

During the summer months I love a flavorful and sweet corn on the cob to nosh on! Corn on the cob can truly be delicious just grilled with a little salt and butter but I wanted to elevate it just a bit. I wrapped individual ears of corn in foil with a small slab of butter and grilled on high – allowing a little extra fire to char some of the outer pieces. Then I finished off the corn with grated parmesan and lime wedges which you can squeeze onto the corn before eating – so fresh, yummy and definitely an inventive and flavorful approach to your standard summer corn! You can even remove the kernels from the cob and make this into a corn salad – either way you’ll hear lots of “YUM” and “MMM…this is so good!” from everyone around your table!

Charred Corn with Lime and Parmesan
  • 4 ears of corn
  • 2 limes
  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  1. Roll each ear of corn into foil individually and include a small slab of butter. Roll tightly and place onto the grill - high heat - for 20 minutes.
  2. Remove corn; allow to cool enough to touch if you are shaving corn kernels from the cob. If you are leaving as corn on the cob; cut each ear of corn in half.
  3. Sprinkle grated Parmesan cheese over the corn cobs.
  4. Slice the limes into wedges and place onto serving platter. Squeeze limes onto corn just before serving and eating.
