80--- Thai Grilled Corn

Grilling corn is super easy- especially if you're already grilling your meal!  The wet husks help to steam the kernels so when you are picking out your corn, look for lots of husk (the pre-trimmed ones in packages at the grocery will not work).

These cobs have the perfect amount of Thai flavor!

Thai Grilled Corn
Serves 4

4 ears sweet corn
2 tsp olive oil
1/2 tsp peanut butter (chunky or creamy)
1/2 tsp Sriracha hot sauce
2 tsp lime juice
Dash garlic powder
Dash salt
1/2 tsp brown sugar
2 Tbsp finely chopped fresh cilantro

Pull husks down on each ear and remove silk strands.  Fold husks back over ear and tie in place with a piece of twine (do not tie in a knot- you will be removing this and then re-tying it).

Soak ears in cold water for 30 minutes.  Preheat grill to medium heat.

Whisk together remaining ingredients in a bowl.  Remove twine, fold down husks and use a pastry brush to brush mixture evenly onto each ear. Replace husks and once again tie with the piece of wet twine.

Place corn onto grill and cook for ~15 minutes, or until kernels are soft (test with a fork).

Remove husk and serve!
