Spicy Sesame Glazed Grilled Corn

DSC_0575I love grilled corn on the cob and this is my favorite recipe yet! I’m not exaggerating when I say I ate three ears last night and could have had more.  The salty, spicy glaze compliments  the sweetness of the corn and the toasted sesame seeds take it over the top.  I made the corn to go alongside a bacon-wrapped pork tenderloin as you’ll see in the pictures below. This was an experiment that I’m not sure I’ll re-make because while the pork was flavorful and juicy, the bacon burned to a crisp on the grill.  Next time I’ll do my bacon-wrapped pork in the oven…but this corn I will make again and again….

What to buy (enough for 7-8 ears of corn):

  • 7-8 ears of corn, husked
  • 2 tablespoons red curry paste
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1-2 tablespoons hot sauce, depending on how much heat you like
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1-2 tablespoons parsley, finely chopped
  • 2 teaspoons toasted sesame seeds
  • 2 green onions, sliced thinly

What to do:

  • whisk red curry paste, garlic, honey, soy sauce, lime juice, hot sauce, red pepper flakes, pepper and parsley
  • heat grill to high
  • grill corn, turning often and basting with glaze, until grill marks start to appear, about 10 minutes
  • take corn off grill and sprinkle with sesame seeds and green onions
