Step by Step Method

Step 1

Preheat a grill or preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).

Step 2

In a small bowl, mix together the melted butter, ground cumin, ground coriander, paprika, salt, and black pepper to create a spice mixture.

Step 3

Brush the ears of corn with the spiced butter mixture, ensuring they are evenly coated on all sides.

Step 4

Place the corn on the preheated grill or on a baking sheet if using the oven.

Step 5

If grilling, cook the corn for about 10-12 minutes, turning occasionally until the kernels are tender and slightly charred.

Step 6

If baking in the oven, cook the corn for about 15-20 minutes, turning halfway through, until the kernels are tender and slightly golden.

Step 7

Once cooked, remove the corn from the grill or oven and let it cool slightly.

Step 8

Serve with fresh lemon wedges on the side.

Step 9

Garnish with chopped cilantro or parsley, if desired.

Fantastic corn and SO EASY to prepare! I loved the flavor. I'm the only one who loves corn-on-the-cob in my family, so I bought one ear of corn to try this with some grilled hamburgers. I'm going to do this recipe over and over this summer. Excellent!

I liked this corn a lot and my whole family complimented it. I cut my corn in half to grill. I still sprinkled salt on it before I ate it.
