Grilled Corn with Garlic Thyme Butter and Corn Nuts Recipe
Corn makes an excellent side to dish to most any meal. To give your corn an extra boost in flavor, try making it our style: with garlic thyme butter and corn nuts. See the recipe below:
Grilled Washington Corn
Washington Corn – husked and par cooked (4 ears)
Garlic Thyme butter (1/2 cup)
Corn Nuts – ground up to a coarse meal (1/4 cup)
- Completely husk corn. Bring a large pot of heavily salted water to a boil (approximately ¼ cup of salt per quart of water). Boil the corn until just soft and cooked. Remove and let cool.This can be done well ahead of time (up to two days in advance).
- Bring the garlic thyme butter out to room temperature or soften until it is easily spreadable. Cut the corn cobs into thirds. Place cut corn into a large mixing bowl along with the softened butter and toss well until completely coated.
- Build a fire to a medium high heat level. Place corn on grill and let cook rotating frequently until there is some blistering on the cobs and the corn is soft and heated through. Have some additional softened butter nearby the grill with a grill brush. Baste the corn a few times while grilling. Remove corn from the grill and place back in the bowl along with an additional few Tbsp. of butter and the corn nuts. Toss well until the corn nuts and butter stick to and coat the corn.
