Grilled Sweet Corn on the Cob

This is a very quick and easy way to make corn, BUT YOU HAVE TO BE CAREFUL NOT TO BURN YOURSELF! I suggest even using hot pads when removing the tinfoil. As a NOTE* when preparing the corn with the olive oil and lime juice, do each corn individually, one at a time (drizzling and wrapping it up before moving on to the next one) so olive oil doesn’t slide off the tinfoil and make a mess. Also, note that each grill will cook differently so adjust cooking time accordingly.

Grilled Sweet Corn on the Cob


  • Sweet Corn (1 per person), husks removed
  • Olive Oil (1-2 teaspoons per corn depending on it size)
  • Lime Juice
  • Sea Salt and Cracked Pepper
  • Directions:

    Heat grill to high. Place each individual corn on a square piece of tinfoil (big enough to fully wrap corn). Lightly drizzle each corn with olive oil and lime juice, rolling it to evenly distribute liquids. Lightly sprinkle with sea salt and cracked pepper and tightly roll up tinfoil around each corn. Place the corn on the grill for 5 minutes, then roll it over half way and grill for another 5 minutes. CAREFULLY remove corn from the tinfoil and grill for another 3-5 minutes. Roll it over and grill another 3-5 minutes or until corn is tender. Serve warm!
