Grilled Corn on the Cob

I don’t even know if this is a recipe. There’s not much to it, but it’s become my favorite way to make corn on the cob.

You simply take fresh corn on the cob and strip half the corn husk and silk, leaving it partially unhusked. Rinse the corn well so that it soaks up some water and there will be water under the remaining portion of the husk.

Microwave, 1 minute per ear of corn (ex. 6 ears of corn will nuke for 6 minutes).

Remove the rest of the husk and corn silk under running water.

Place the ears of corn on a hot grill right over the flame. Since the corn is mostly cooked it won’t need much time on the grill. Just let it start to char a bit and rotate so it gets evenly grilled. Should be done in a few minutes, depending on how hot the grill is.

Since it was pre-cooked in the microwave it’s not on the grill that long. It won’t dry out but you still get plenty of grilled corn taste.
