I’m so into grilling mode at this point as the weather has warmed up and all I want to do is be outside and that include cooking outside so our grill is getting great use.

This Grilled Corn Recipe is of our favorite sides to serve with so many various recipes. It literally goes with pretty much all the things, or we serve it with all the things because we love it.

Using only 6 ingredients and 20 minutes this dish comes together in absolutely no time! If you are a corn fan and want different ways to serve it, this is one recipe that you need to try.

The garlic butter on this recipe really sets it apart and will make you come back for more each and every single time. We just cannot get enough!

Like I’ve said so many times before, easy and tasty recipes are my favorite and this Grilled Corn checks both those boxes, so it is an absolute staple around here.

Some of my other favorite side dishes that we have on our site include: Ranch BLT Pasta Salad, Baked Asparagus Fries and Loaded Mashed Potato Cakes.

Ingredients needed to make Grilled Corn.

HOW TO MAKE GRILLED CORN:

  1. Preheat the grill to high and heat for 10 minutes. If using charcoal, prepare your charcoal ahead of time, this will take longer to heat up.
  2. Mix the butter, garlic, parsley, and salt together. Spread half of the butter mixture onto the corn before placing them on the grill. 
  3. Grilled them for 10 to 15 minutes, turning them from one side to the other until slightly charred.
  4. Take off the grill and spread more butter over warm corn and season with smoked paprika if using. Serve immediately.

DOES THIS NEED TO BE CHARRED?

We like a nice char on the corn, but cook it to your desired charring. Because of the butter, the grill might smoke and have flare ups. This will happen from the butter getting hot and dripping onto the burners or charcoal.

WHAT OTHER SEASONINGS CAN I USE ON THIS?

We like to sprinkle it with paprika at the end for a pretty presentation. You can use sweet paprika if you prefer but we love smoked paprika to give a touch more smokiness to the corn.

Other yummy seasonings you can use: bbq seasoning, blackened seasoning, lemon pepper, Italian seasoning, Montreal steak seasoning, chipotle powder, or cayenne.

I HAVE LEFTOVER BUTTER, WHAT CAN I DO WITH IT?

We love butter in our house, so I normally make a double batch to eat with the corn. If there are leftovers it makes a fantastic quick garlic bread. Just spread a thin layer of the butter onto slices of bread and lightly toast under the broiler, heavenly!

HOW TO STORE:

This can be stored in the refrigerator where it will keep for up to 4 days.

This can also be frozen, to do that place corn in a freezer container and it will keep in the freezer for up to 3 months.

To defrost, place in the refrigerator overnight until thawed and then you can rewarm it in the microwave or in the oven at 350 degrees F until heated through.
