Ingredients Nutrition

  • 6 ears corn, husks and silk removed
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons fish sauce
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 12 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 green onions, white parts only, thinly sliced
  • vegetable oil, for brushing

Directions

  1. Prepare charcoal grill or preheat an ungreased cast-iron skillet over medium heat.
  2. Very lightly brush the corn with oil and set on the grill rack or in the skillet.
  3. Cook, turning every 2-3 minutes, until the kernels are tender and nicely charred, 12-15 minutes total; keep warm.
  4. Meanwhile, in a bowl stir together the fish sauce, water, sugar and salt until it is dissolved.
  5. Heat the 2 tbsp oil in a saucepan over medium heat until very hot but not smoking.
  6. Carefully pour liquid mixture in (it may sputter a bit so watch out); add the green onions and simmer until the sauce begins to thicken, about 30 seconds; remove from heat and cool.
  7. Brush cooked corn with the sauce and serve.
