Teriyaki Grilled Corn

Teriyaki Grilled Corn

Grilled Corn on the Cob is a summer favorite in our home. We tend to make it often and are always looking to change up the taste of the corn from just the ordinary butter or vegan butter flavor. Using a teriyaki sauce recipe, such as this one, brings our corn to a completely different level of flavor. Today you will learn how to grill corn on the cob with a flavor combination that is different from the norm.

Teriyaki Grilled Corn Ingredients

Corn – 4 Ears

Ginger – 1 Inch, Minced

Garlic – 3 Cloves, Minced

Olive Oil – 1 Tablespoon

Soy Sauce – ¼ Cup *

Molasses- 1 Tablespoon *

(* In place of Traditional Soy Sauce and Molasses, you can use ¼ Cup ABC Medium Sweet Soy Sauce)

How to prepare Teriyaki Grilled Corn

Start by heating your grill.

This next step involves cutting off one inch of the bottom of the corn on the cob.

Next, remove the corn husk and discard.

Oil the bottom of a pan that is barbeque safe.

Place the four cleaned ears of corn into the pan.

At this time, peel and mince about one inch of fresh ginger.

Now, peel and mince the three cloves of garlic.

In a bowl, add a quarter cup of soy sauce and one tablespoon of molasses. If you rather use ABC Medium Sweet Soy Sauce instead of the traditional soy sauce and molasses, do so. Generally, we make this recipe with the ABC Soy Sauce. It just happens to be our favorite for this recipe.

Add the garlic and ginger to the soy sauce mixture and stir to combine.

Once heated, lower the flame on your grill.

Coat the corn with the soy sauce combination using a basting brush. Turn the corn to cover the underside with the sauce blend as well.

When the corn is covered, place on your grill. If you have a top rack on your grill, use it; this helps prevent the mixture from sticking and allows the corn to cook more slowly.

Additionally, turn the corn over frequently. If you lack a top rack, turn more often. Since we do not have a top rack, we rotate the corn frequently. The rotating process works very well. Keep in mind, some parts of the corn will get crispy but that adds to the flavor and texture.

Furthermore, the corn will be ready once the corn kernels are tender.

Serve hot.
