Cajun Corn on the Cob! If you’re looking for a way to spice up your grilled corn, this recipe is for you.
I grew up in Louisiana and Cajun cuisine is a staple in my family. My love for Cajun food started from a young age, and this recipe is a perfect example of how a simple dish can be transformed into something truly delicious.
To start, you’ll need to gather the ingredients, which include some classic Cajun spices like paprika, garlic powder, and onion powder. Once you have everything, it’s time to get grilling!
I like to start by pulling back the husks from the corn, but leaving them attached. This helps to protect the corn while it’s cooking and also keeps the delicious spices and butter on the cob. After brushing on the melted butter, it’s time to sprinkle on the Cajun spice mixture.
Next, place the corn on the grill and let it cook for about 12 minutes, turning occasionally. As the corn cooks, the spices will start to caramelize and the butter will start to seep into the kernels. It’s a beautiful thing to watch!
When the corn is done, it will have a nice char on the outside and the kernels will be juicy and tender. As you take your first bite, you’ll taste the bold flavors of the Cajun spices, the richness of the butter, and the sweetness of the corn. It’s a flavor explosion in your mouth!
Cajun Corn on the Cob is a staple at all of our summer barbecues and it always disappears quickly. It’s a perfect side dish for burgers, hot dogs, chicken, or any other grilled meats. It’s also a great dish to bring to potlucks or picnics.
In conclusion, I highly recommend giving this recipe a try. It’s an easy and delicious way to elevate your standard grilled corn into something truly special. Whether you’re a fan of Cajun cuisine or just looking for a new way to enjoy corn on the cob, this recipe is a must-try.
