Do you want to be the star of your next barbecue? Transform your plain grilled corn into something extra special with Cajun seasoning, chopped onion and garlic! Serve it with grilled burgers, fish, chicken and all your other grilled dishes. It's also a great side dish for cooking seafood.
What is Cajun Seasoning?
Cajun spice mixes vary, but usually include easy-to-find spices like Paprika, onion powder and oreganoand give yourself a kick from cayenne pepper. Homemade Cajun seasoning is easy to make, and you may already have all the spices you need in your pantry. It is inexpensive to prepare, once you have the spices it is always good to have them on hand. Of course, you can adjust the amount of seasoning according to your taste and prepare it as hot or mild as you like.
Various brands of Cajun seasoning mixes are also available at most grocery stores. For an authentic taste of Louisiana, look for state-owned brands including Slap Ya Mama and Louisiana Fish Fry Products. For a slightly different Louisiana flavor feel free to use Creole spices, such as at Tony Chacherie's.
The best way to grill corn on the cob
Corn is often grilled with the husks on to keep the kernels from drying out. In this recipe, however, the corn needs to be hulled so you can coat it with the spice mix.
The trick to keeping the husked corn from drying out is to soak it in water before grilling. If possible, leave it on for two hours before turning on the grill.
