  • Yield: 6 1x


  • 6 ears corn, shucked
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter
  • ½ cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese, divided
  • ¼ cup fresh chopped basil

  1. Bring pot filled about 2 inches high with water in a deep pot fitted with a steam basket to boil. Add the corn to the pot by standing up against the side of the pot. Cover with a lid and steam for 5 minutes. Transfer to a baking tray.
  2. Preheat grill to high and grill corn, turning occasionally, until nicely charred (5-7 mins). Transfer to a baking tray.
  3. Lightly brush corn with butter, turning to coat. Season with salt & pepper (and chili flakes if you are using). Sprinkle with half of the cheese, turning to coat. Arrange on a serving platter and sprinkle the remaining cheese and basil.
