For all the vegetarians, and just for those who love to grill their corn on the cob, this recipe is absolutely delicious. Here’s how to properly make Ginger and Lime-Glazed Corn on the Cob.

Serves: 6

Prep-Time: 15 minutes

Way to Grill: Direct medium heat (350° to 450°F)

Grilling Time: 15 Minutes

The Glaze

                1/3 cup low-sodium chicken broth

                4 tablespoons of unsalted butter

                1 tablespoon of granulated sugar

                1 teaspoon of finely grated lime zest

                1 teaspoon of kosher salt

                1 teaspoon of grated fresh ginger


                6 ears of fresh sweet corn, in their husks.

Step 1: Prepare the grill for direct cooking over medium heat.

Step 2: In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, stir the glaze ingredients and bring to a boil. Continue to boil until the glaze slightly thickens, 5 to 7 minutes. Keep the glaze warm.

Step 3: Cut off the top of each ear of corn just above the first row of kernels. Set aside a couple of corn husks to make long strips. Pull the corn husks back, but be sure not to break them off the ears. Remove and discard the corn silk. On each ear, gather the husks together where they narrow toward the ends and use a strip of husk about ½ inch wide to tie the husks together for a handle. Mix and then brush the glaze thoroughly over the corn. Brush the cooking grates clean. Grill the corn over direct medium heat, with the lid closed as much as possible, letting the husks extend over indirect heat so as not to burn them. Cook the corn until it is browned in spots and is tender, 10 to 15 minutes, turning several times. Transfer to a platter and baste the kernels with the remaining glaze.
