Sweet Corn with Chili and Orange Hoisin Glaze

Grilled Corn with Orange Hoisin and Chili Glaze

One of the things that I love most about summer is sweet corn on the cob. So as sweet corn season (and summer itself, boohoo) comes to an end, I find myself grabbing it from a local farm as often as possible knowing that it will soon be gone.
This is one of my favorite ways to eat sweet corn, with a unique twist. You may even remember me sharing it here a few years ago. I’ve since tweaked a few things with the recipe and now I officially declare it end-of-summer sweet corn perfection. I hope you love it as much as we do.

Serves 6

INGREDIENTS
6 ears sweet corn, husked
1 tablespoon Hoisin Sauce  
1 teaspoon chili oil (red pepper flakes work too!) 
5-6 tablespoons butter, melted
2 teaspoons finely grated orange rind
fresh cilantro, chopped (optional)

Heat your grill to medium high. In a small bowl, combine Hoisin sauce, chili oil or red pepper flakes, melted butter, and grated orange rind, and mix well. Grill corn for about 3 minutes, turn, and grill another 2-3 minutes. Use a brush to coat corn with glaze, and continue to grill for another 5-7 minutes, brushing with the glaze every couple of minutes. Remove corn from grill, brush with glaze, and top with chopped cilantro.

Savor that sweet corn, friends. I know I will be, ’til summer’s bitter end.
