Happy Independence Day! We're celebrating at home with a BBQ and here with a coupon!
There are also FIREWORKS on Friday!
Starts at 9:30pm.
So our family BBQs are always fun and filled with the usual suspects. Burgers, chicken and hot dogs and loads and loads of fresh veggies. My grandfather loves corn, but his teeth don't care for it as much as he does. So, in the interest of good dental health, here is a corn recipe that is easy and flavorful while retaining all that is so so good about summer corn. (but gently!)
This works for any spice blend, but definitely recommend the Jerk Blend! It's fiery but not overwhelming. It would be great with the Prime Rub or Anglers too. (I love lime on corn)
Fire Roasted Jerk Corn
1/2 tbsp Jerk Seasoning Blend
2 tbsp Coratina or Casa Ligaro Olive Oil
4 ears Corn
Working one ear at a time, stand up your corn and use a very sharp knife to cut the kernels off the cob. They have fancy tools are extremely cool and work even better, but a knife will work just fine if that's what you have. Gather all the kernels into a bowl and sprinkle with the seasoning blend. Toss to coat. Drizzle with the olive oil and toss again.
Heat your grill to medium high. If you still have them, I like to use the corn husks to grill these. I just grab a silk-free section of the softer husk and use it like a little boat. If you don't have them, I make little boats out of foil. Don't crowd the kernels - I like to cook these in single serving packets, about one ear of corn worth each.
Place the corn boats on the edges of the grill and let them cook for 10-15 minutes. If you don't have a grill handy, heat your oven to 400° and bake for about 12-14 minutes. Stir and serve.
Have a great weekend! And for our friends to the North, Happy Canada Day! (July 1st)
