Summer spells BBQ. So we try to have a BBQ or a party at every possible opportunity .
There is something really exciting about food cooked in the open. The smoky burnt flavours of food make everyone really really hungry, even the neighbours!
Last month we had a huge party at our house. The menu was quite straightforward- grilled chicken thighs, chicken wings for the non-vegetarians, grilled paneer and grilled asparagus for the vegetarians and grilled Lemon Pepper corn on the cobs for the kids, especially. The corn was a really big hit. Everyone loved it. The recipe is really straightforward. All it needs is 3 simple ingredients.
It is a must at your next BBQ party. If you don’t have a BBQ grill, simply use your grill/ toaster/ oven.
It is quick and super-yum.
- Corn on the cob
- Butter- 1 tsp
- Lemon pepper

If using fresh corn on the cob, boil it for 10 minutes. You could also use frozen corn on the cob. They are conveniently cut into 2 inch pieces. If so, thaw them and they are ready to use. Alternatively, you could wrap fresh corn in aluminium foil and bake for 15 minutes at 180C
Cut the corn into 2-2 1/2 inch pieces.
Brush with olive oil or melted butter and place on the heated grill or BBQ.
Turn over till they get beautiful brown grill marks.
Once done, sprinkle some Lemon pepper onto the corn. Serve hot.
