Grill-Steamed Corn with Cilantro and Chile Flakes

Grill-Steamed Corn with Cilantro and Chile Flakes


Yield

Serves 4 (serving size: 1 ear)

Aleppo is a Middle Eastern ground pepper with moderate heat and fruity notes. This technique steams the corn in its husk right on the grill. Some smoke flavor permeates the corn, but not as much as when it rests on the grill rack without husks. The husks and silk are very easy to remove after the corn is cooked.

Ingredients

  • 4 large ears fresh corn with husks
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh cilantro
  • 3/4 teaspoon Aleppo chile powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 lime wedges
