Cajun Recipes: Cajun Grilled Corn

Like many Cajun recipes, this corn is sweet, spicy, and vinegar-y. I’m not sure that’s a word, but it sure works here. You see, the hot sauce you add to the corn contains vinegar. This grilled corn recipe is easy, delicious, and it won’t heat up your kitchen or mess up any pots because you cook it right on the grill, with bbq cooking. Next time you’re grilling a steak or pork chops, toss a few ears of this corn-on-the-cob over the coals, too!

This Cajun recipe will make enough seasoned butter for two or more ears, depending on heavily you apply it. Double or triple the recipe, if you need to.
