Summer Side Dish: Grilled Beer-Basil Corn

June 21, 2009


Grilling corn is so easy, and it’s so versatile to prepare. I was out at the farmer’s market this weekend and thought I would try my hand at a simple ingredient combination to flavor the corn: using light beer and basil. It came out great! Feel free to add sea salt, pepper or your favorite herbs. It’s wonderful this time of year.

Beer-Basil Corn

Prep: 10 minutes
Cook: 10 minutes
Yield: 4 to 6 servings
4 ears fresh corn, removing husks and silks
1 (12-ounce) bottle light beer (I like Modelo)
1/2 cup finely chopped fresh basil
1. Place corn in a large dish and pour beer over to cover. Sprinkle with basil, turning well. Let stand 15 minutes or soak overnight, if desired.

2. Drain and place on grill, covered with grill lid, over medium-high heat (350°to 400°) 5 to 10 minutes or until golden brown, turning occasionally.
