Mexican Grilled Corn

I dunno about you, but lately all I want to eat is food packed full of zest and chilli. I currently do not care for big bowls of comforting pasta, or heavy stews; I want spice, and lots of it! I’ve been adding Sriracha chilli sauce to things that don’t even require it, just so I can make my palette come alive.

Is it just me, or are you feeling that too?

I made us some home made Nandos burgers for dinner last night, and instead of weighing us down with chips as a side dish, I knew that all I wanted to have was Mexican grilled corn I had seen on Ellie and Mez’s blogs.

Amazingly easy to make, this dish is going to become a staple in our diet from now on. I didn’t sprinkle cayenne pepper on Hamish’s corn, as every time I’ve used cayenne pepper before, we have burnt our faces of eating whatever dish it was in. This was the first time I could actually enjoy it. With the added tang of the lime juice, you can’t go wrong with this dish.

Definitely going to do this at BBQs in the summer to impress my friends 😉 They can supply the mojitos!

Mexican Grilled Corn
Recipe by Ellie – Gourmand Recipes and alterations by Iron Chef Shellie

4 ears corn, husk and silk removed
40g butter, softened
1 lime (must use fresh lime, not the stuff out of a squeeze bottle)
1 teaspoon Cayenne pepper (or to taste)
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Salt and pepper

1. Preheat BBQ or griddle pan.

2. Grill the corn, turning, until nicely charred, for about 10-15 minutes.

3. Spread the butter on each corn cob.

4. Squeeze the juice of 1/2 lime over the corn.

5. Sprinkle with the cayenne pepper and season with salt and pepper.

6. Grate Parmesan cheese on top of the corn and serve immediately.

Makes 4.

    One of these and a mojito would be perfect right about now :)

    Yum!!! I know just how gorgeous that would be! I have a thing for spice and zing at the moment so the lime would have been extra awesome.
