Cajun Spiced Grilled Corn - A Recipe that the Whole family Will enjoy!

This Cajun Grilled Corn is an easy side dish to make for your summer gatherings and cookouts!

It has a buttery, smoky, and slightly spicy flavor combination that goes well with the sweetness of the corn.

The corn is covered in a delicious Cajun seasoning made with paprika, garlic powder, chili and thyme, then drizzled with salted butter and grilled to perfection!

Once the ears are cooked, top them with the crumbled Cotija cheese.

Season the corn with Cajun seasoning

Cajun seasoning is a blend of spices with an earthy flavor and a little spicy! It is mainly made from paprika, garlic powder, pepper and thyme.

It's often used in Cajun and Creole dishes, but it's still a great all-purpose spice to add pizzazz to any dish. I have a homemade recipe that I use.

You can use a store-bought Cajun seasoning if you don't want to make your own. My cajun seasoning recipe has no salt added.

If you're using store-bought butter, use unsalted butter to avoid over-salted corn because they can have too much added salt.

Tips for choosing corn in the market

I always make sure each ear is fresh and sweet. Here are some great tips when shopping for your selection!

  • Always look for the tassels sticking out at the top. If it's black, brown, and sticky to the touch, that means it's not the freshest piece.
  • The husks (the outer leaves) should be green.
  • The ears of corn should be firm and heavy.

How to shuck corn

Before roasting, we want to shuck the corn.

The best way to do this is to take a portion of the silky fibers and green outer husks and remove them to expose the kernels.

Keep doing this until everything is removed.

Ingredients

  • 8 tablespoons (1 stick) salted butter
  • 8 ears of fresh corn, shelled
  • 1 tablespoon cajun seasoning, homemade or store-bought

to decorate

  • 1/4 cup Cotija cheese
  • 1/4 cup cilantro finely chopped

Method

Preheat grill to high, making sure the temperature reaches around 550℉.

Meanwhile, melt the butter:

Add butter to a small saucepan over medium heat and watch closely until melted, 1 to 2 minutes. Get out of the fire.

Drizzle corn with butter:

Place the corn on a large platter or platter. Separate 2 tablespoons of melted butter, you will use this later. Using a heatproof brush, brush each piece with the remaining butter.

Season the corn:

Sprinkle the Cajun seasoning evenly over the corn.

Roast the corn:

Using tongs, place each ear directly on the rack.

Cook the corn for 10 to 15 minutes, turning every 2 to 3 minutes, making sure each side is evenly browned. Brush corn with butter as it cooks.

The corn is fully cooked when the kernels are soft by gently pressing them with the tongs.

Drizzle the corn with more butter, garnish and serve:

Remove the cooked corn from the grill and place on a plate. Brush the remaining butter over the corn with the basting brush.

Garnish with Cotija cheese and cilantro and serve immediately.

To stock:

You can store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
