Grilled Corn on the Cob

Prep time 15 mins
Cook time 20 mins
Yield Makes 10 servings
All you need is fresh corn, olive oil, and salt to get the most perfect grilled corn of the summer.

Ingredients

  • 10 ears fresh corn with husks
  • Olive oil (about 1/4 cup)
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons salt

How to Make It

  1. Remove heavy outer husks from corn; pull back (but do not remove) inner husks. Remove and discard silks; rinse corn, and dry with paper towels. Tie inner husks together with string, leaving ears exposed.

  2. Brush corn cobs lightly with oil; sprinkle evenly with salt. Position corn so that tied husks hang over edge of grill to avoid burning husks.

  3. Grill corn, covered with grill lid, over medium-high heat (350° to 400°) 20 minutes, turning every 5 minutes, or until done. (Some kernels will begin to char and pop.) Serve immediately.
