Tonight we grilled steaks with corn on the cob. Since my pot for blanching corn was in the dishwasher I decided to try something new-broiled corn. I haven't gotten up my nerve to grill it yet, but broiling worked really well!
On a broiler pan lightly spritz the whole (hulled) cobs of new corn with olive oil.
Sprinkle with salt, pepper & seasonings. I used salt, pepper, and a dash of chili powder. Mrs. Dash would be delicious, but I didn't have any on hand.
Put under your broiler 5-8 minutes on each side, or until kernels darken slightly and plump out. When the corn is slightly browning on the very tips it is done. Turn once during cooking.
Tips & Tricks:
Next time I make this, I will use butter instead of olive oil, because I prefer the butter flavor on corn.
Make it Healthier:
*sigh* Don't use oil or butter. Omit salt.
How Kids can Help:
Kids can help hull the corn cobs and pick off the corn silk.
