Lime and Chilli Grilled Corn on the Cob | At Down Under | Viviane Perenyi

Each time I shuck an ear of corn, I think that fashion designer Issey Miyake got his inspiration for his pleated clothes from the husk. Just my imagination…
Don’t you find the texture and gradual colour interesting though? Of course, the most important you will tell me is inside. Shiny golden kernels tightly arranged in rows.

To be honest, I’ve underrated corn until now. The main reason is the way I was used to prepare it, simply boiled.
Everything changed after the first bite of grilled corn though. The sweet taste beautifully enhanced with a knob of butter, a dash of salt and a drizzle of lime juice is rather addictive. And Paprika agreed with me.

So we are just making the most of the corn season…

Basically I followed these instructions. I just pulled up the husks before using the oven grill instead of the barbecue. I prepared beforehand a flavored salt with chilli flakes and finely grated lime zest.
Simple and tasty snack assured!
