Grilled Corn with Chili Lime Mayonnaise

Author: Canadian Living

Smearing mayonnaise all over the cobs before wrapping and grilling them infuses Mexican flavours into the kernels.

  • Portion size 8 servings

Ingredients

  • 8 corn cobs
  • 1/2 cup light mayonnaise
  • 1 green onion thinly sliced
  • 1 jalapeño pepper seeded and minced
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon grated lime rind
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup shredded old Cheddar cheese (optional)

Method

Without tearing, carefully peel back corn husks; remove silks. Set aside.

In bowl, combine mayonnaise, onion, jalapeño pepper, garlic, lime rind and juice, salt and pepper; spread 1 tbsp (15 mL) over kernels of each cob. Pull up husks, smoothing over cob; tie each tightly at top with string. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 5 hours.)

Place corn on greased grill over medium-high heat; close lid and grill, turning frequently, until charred and beginning to smoke, about 25 minutes. To serve, pull back husks and sprinkle each cob with 2 tbsp (25 mL) cheese (if using).
