I’m a Jersey guy, and in my opinion, there’s nothing better than Jersey sweet corn in the dead of summer. Any corn will do for this recipe, but I strongly recommend you try to get your hands on my home state’s.

Ingredients

  • ears fresh corn, shucked
  • 1  Tablespoon  balsamic vinegar
  • 1  Tablespoon  Parmesan cheese
  • Pinch of  chili flakes
  • Olive oil, for grilling
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Directions

 

Heat a grill to medium-high. Season the ears of corn with a little bit of olive oil and salt and pepper to taste. Alternatively, you can brush your grill with olive oil, rather than the ears of corn. Grill the ears of corn, turning constantly, until nice charred and a bright yellow. Remove the corn from the grill but leave the grill on.

In a large bowl, toss together the grilled corn on the cob with the balsamic, Parmesan, and chile flakes. Put the cobs back on the grill for 2 more minutes, turning constantly.

Grill Shopping Tip

Think twice before buying a thicker piece of meat; a 2-inch thick steak takes four times (not twice) as long as 1-inch thick steak to cook.

Grill Cooking Tip

If you're cooking something that's been marinated, make sure to pat the item dry before it hits the grill. Any sugar in the marinade will burn.
