Southern Grilled Street Corn
Is there any food more reminiscent of summer than corn-on-the-cob? I can't see an ear of corn and not be transported back to childhood summers full of Fourth of July potluck picnics, cookouts in the backyard, or beachfront dinners. There are so many things you can do with corn. You can boil it, scrape if off the cob and sauté it, or add it into casseroles. It is great in bean salads and pasta salads.
As the weather is gets warmer, my folks fire up the grill more and more. This weekend we decided to have a little fun with some fresh corn. The recipe we created gives a slight nod to the delicious Elote or Mexican street corn. We strayed pretty far from the traditional recipe using Dukes mayonnaise and Well Seasoned Table Taco Seasoning, but our end result was every bit as delicious as the original. You can definitely replicate this dish in the oven, but I think the grill gives it a nice flavor. We chose to keep things a bit neater by wrapping each ear in foil, but feel free to pop these suckers straight on the grill for even more oomph.
This corn is going to pair great with any summer dish you cook up. We chose chicken wings and a fresh salad to balance out the richness of this flavor-packed side dish. I can see this working well with steaks, a big seafood broil, or even grilled salmon. However you decide to enjoy corn this summer, be sure to use your favorite Well Seasoned Table sea salt or seasoning to make it extra delicious!
