Lime Grilled Corn

“It is officially that time of the year when you get invited to an “on the fly” barbeque. What to bring on short notice is always the challenge. My go-to satiating option is grilled chili lime corn on the cob. It’s easy to transport and super quick to prepare in a pinch. Corn adds a complementary side option to the usual meat-laden dishes at every barbeque.

I recommend picking up a quality pastry brush for the recipe. A pastry brush, though sometimes overlooked thought of as an obscure kitchen utensil, is very versatile and needs to be in every kitchen to spread marinade on your next steak and corn on the cob dinner.” – Joe
