MEXICAN STREET CORN – FIVE WAYS

Directions

Preheat BBQ or a grill pan on medium high heat.

Remove husks off the cob and brush with oil or butter  and season with salt. Grill corn on the BBQ or grill pan until slightly charred all over and kernels are bright yellow (about 10 minutes).

While the corn is cooking, make the sauce / topping of your choice. In a medium bowl or jar with tight fitting lid, combine all of your topping ingredients and mix well together.

Transfer corn to a serving plate and, while the corn is still hot, brush generously with your topping.

Serve with lime wedges to squeeze over just before eating.
