Broiled Summer Corn


Broiled Summer Corn

You have to agree that roasted corn is a quintessential summer side dish. For a fun look, pull the husk away from the cob but keep it attached, secure it with a knot. When ready, those husks will be perfectly charred broil the corn at high temperatures  (500F to be exact) for about 12 minutes to get that perfect steam to the vegetable. I then smear the corn with my special spicy butter for a lovely kick. The secret to a delicious crunch is to bake the corn even further, another 3-5 minutes until it gets a nice golden color. Corn will come out beautifully roasted with outrageous flavor. It is a simple yet delicious dish, and all your guests will be asking for the recipe!
