This recipe raises fresh corn to another level entirely.


  1. Soak the corn in cold water for 30 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile mix all the other ingredients together, and heat the barbecue grill on low/medium heat.
  3. Cook the corn on the grill (still in husks) for 30 minutes, turning occasionally.
  4. Remove corn from the grill and peel back the husks (the silk will just fall away easily).
  5. Slather the ears of corn with the sauce and serve immediately.
  6. Warning: Serve with plenty of paper napkins!

WELL!!! What can I say but this is the best! I live in a small town that has the best corn in a 1000 miles radius. I thought nothing could make it any better. I also live in MD and my favorite way to eat corn would be with butter and Old Bay seasoning. I have just replaced my Old Bay! Well sort of....I followed the recipe except that I didn't have any lime juice, so I substitued lemon juice. I also added a hint of Old Bay seasoning. The whole family loved it and now this sauce will be a staple for my table as long as corn is in season. I urge everyone to try this recipe. It is great! I am so happy that ChefD submitted it and I stepped out of my box to give it a try. 100 stars is not enough!

This is the way they prepare corn on the cob here in Mexico and it is wonderful! I definitely wondered what the lure was in the beginning - mayonnaise on corn!? But have since joined the club. We always add much more cayenne and everyone loves it! Thank you for the written recipe on this one!

I roasted ears in the oven first because it was pouring rain outside. I used Dukes mayo and the green can parmesan since I was out of the real stuff. I was shocked that this was so very very good. Wow is all I can say. Great recipe!
