How to make Grilled Corn - step by step:
One: In a bowl, mix together the butter, fresh herbs, garlic and salt and pepper.
What Herbs To Use?
If you are growing herbs this year, then chances are they are going to be taking over your garden before long. I don't think you will ever be short of recipes that use a lot of herbs, but you can never have too many, right?
This recipe is a great way to use up herbs, as it uses basil, parsley and mint. But you could use dill, chives or coriander too. I wouldn't recommend using woody herbs like thyme or oregano though.
Once you have cooked all your corn on the barbecue, serve it up on a platter and drizzle all the butter leftover in the foil on top of it so none of it is wasted. Sprinkle over any leftover herbs and then to make the dish that little bit better, crumble some soft goats cheese on top. You could even add a squeeze of lime for a nice fresh summer flavour.
What To Serve Grilled Corn With
This is a great side dish to serve up at a BBQ, so it goes with all the usual BBQ foods like burgers, sausages and skewers. Why not try it with our Vegetable and Halloumi Skewers, Cajun Chicken Burgers, Hidden Vegetable Beef Burgers, Honey and Lime Chicken or Peri Peri Chicken
How To Store
This is always best cooked fresh, however if you make too much of it that you can slice all the corn off and put it in an air tight container. It will then be good to add to salads or tacos for the next couple of days.
- Pick the freshest corn that you can find - this will ensure that it is nice and sweet.
- Try not to overcook the corn, as it will start to become quite chewy.
- Add a kick of heat by sprinkling a few red chilli flakes just before serving.
- If you make too much, you can slice to corn off and keep it in an air tight container for a couple of days.
