Barbecued, Spiced Lime Corn on the Cob

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 15 mins

We love corn on the cob...but have to resist the temptation to smother it in butter. This is simple,tasty and low fat too!!


  1. Pull the husks back from the corn, then remove and discard the silks. Rub each cob with a wedge of lime the fold back the husks to cover the kernels.
  2. Cook over medium hot coals for about 10 mins (approx) turning frequently until the corn is dark golden and the kernels tender.
  3. Mix together the salt and the cayenne pepper.
  4. Pull the husks away from the corn and sprinkle over the salt mixture. Serve with a wedge of lime for extra rubbing.

The lime and cayenne were a great combo to the quick tasty recipe. I did use 2 tablespoons of tangy BBQ cause, and divided it 4 ways, lightly brushing 1/2 tablespoon on each cob. The lime taste was still noticable, and made for a great treat. The amount of spiciness was just right. Tagged and made for PRMR tag.

What with the lime & cayenne pepper, this is definitely a different & enjoyable way of having corn on the cob! I'd thought it might be a bit too spicy for me, but that wasn't the case at all! Delicious, for sure! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]
