Summer, Seasonal Goodness - Grilled Corn on a Stick

Grilled corn on a stick is one of my favourite Mexican street food classics. It is very easy to prep and a perfect side to serve for a summer get-together with friends and family. I ate grilled corn so often during my time in Mexico and love to think back of the times when I stopped the car on my way back home from work to grab a delicious street-sold corn on the stick as a to-go snack or lunch- as an alternative to the everyday taco party. :) 

Due to availability, the Mexicans typically use white corn for this street food classic. But this doesn't matter if you ask me: The sweet and yellow alternative available across the US and Europe is as least as good as the traditional classic. Plus, we are using what's available in the region which is a huge plus for our planet and the climate.

Throughout Europe, corn is in season between June and October. So if you happen to have a freshly harvested corn in your fridge, let's oven-grill it together! 

Share Your Corn Love 

I hope you enjoy this delicious, plant-loaded summer appetizer as much as I do during corn season in summer. Topped with feta, fresh coriander, lime, tajín and the green coriander salsa, the dish brings so many vacation vibes to the table if you ask me. 

As always, I would love to see your veggie-kitchen experiments and repost it on my social channels. So make sure to tag me on Instagram, Pinterest, Youtube, or Facebook. Besides, if you have any feedback for me, questions with regards to the recipe, or if you just want to say "hey", comment below or shoot me a personal message through my contact form.

2 SERVINGS PREP TIME : 10 min COOK/REST TIME : 45 min
Grilled corn on a stick is one of my favourite Mexican street food classics. It is very easy to prep and a perfect side to serve for a late summer get-together with friends and family. 
INGREDIENTS PREPARATION
INGREDIENTS :
    • GRILLED CORN (IN THE OVEN) :
    • -  
      2 yellow corns (cut in half)
    • -  
      Salt / Pepper
    • -  
      Soft butter (can be mildly salty but not necessary)
    • CORIANDER-LIME SALSA :
    • -  
      10g coriander
    • -  
      85ml oat milk
    • -  
      40g hemp seeds
    • -  
      1 Tsp light brown Shiro Miso
    • -  
      Dash of salt & pepper
    • -  
      Juice from 1/2 lime
    • -  
      1 Tsp Maple Syrup
    • TOPPINGS :
    • -  
      Feta (or vegan alternative)
    • -  
      Lime
    • -  
      Fresh Coriander
    • -  
      Tajín (Mexican spice; sub with chili powder or paprika powder)
    • -  
      Coriander-Lime Salsa (see above)
PREPARATION :
  1. Wash the corn thoroughly and cook in lightly salty water for about 20 min. Take the corn out of the pot, half it (if desired) and place it onto aluminium foil.
  2. Then, coat the corn with soft butter, drizzle salt, pepper on top and close the aluminum foil package.
  3. Bake the corn for about 15 min in a preheated oven at 180*C Top-Bottom heat. Check the consistency and remove the aluminium foil. For the perfect "grilled" roasting aroma, I recommend placing the corn back into the oven for 10 min using the oven grill function (if available).
  4. Take the corn out, press the sticks into them and coat with additional butter (if desired) as well as feta, coriander lime salsa, loads of lime juice, tajín and fresh coriander..
  5. Serve and enjoy.
