Equipment

  • Grill, grill pan, or broiler

Ingredients

  • 4 ears fresh corn
  • ½ tsp. chili powder
  • 1 lime, zested and juiced
  • 2 Tbsp. chopped cilantro
  • 1 tsp. olive oil

Instructions

  • Shuck corn and place it on a hot grill. Use tongs to turn the corn every minute or so, to evenly char it. This takes between 5-7 minutes, depending on the heat of your grill.
  • (Corn can be also char on a grill pan on the stove top, or under the broiler.)
  • Remove from heat, let cool, and cut kernels from the cob.
  • In a large bowl, combine chili powder, lime zest, lime juice, olive oil and cilantro. Mix well.
  • Add corn and toss to coat. Serve at room temperature.

Notes

Alternatively, the corn can be left on the cob, and the seasoning mixture can be basted on with a silicone basting brush.
