Grilled corn is simply a must have side for all occasions during the summer season. It is sweet, juicy and doesn’t require a ton of prep or cooking time which makes it a perfect variety item on your menu. Nobody can say no to a delicious corn on the cob and that is why everybody should have their own little spin on this classic accompaniment to your garden parties.holding grilled corn in hands

Now, I am a big fan of Japanese cuisine so my go to recipe whenever I need to whip up some crazy tasting corn is miso herb butter. Miso is one of my all time staples in the fridge. It is fantastic in taste and very versatile in use (you can make all sorts of dips and sauces with it, tell me if you would want to know more). It also keeps in the fridge for ages. The reason why miso herb butter works so well with corn is because it highlights its sweetness and packs that extra herb fragrance that is impossible to withstand.  Sprinkle the char grilled corn with a bit of cheese and chopped parsley for that extra finesse and flavor.Grilled corn with herb butter with shaved parmesan on top

Happy grilling everyone and hope your summer will be filled with tasty meals and good memories. Also, I wanted to add that if you are not a big fan, or simply don’t have any miso, it is totally okay. Just add some extra garlic into the butter to your taste and let the herbs do its work, trust me your guests will love this one just as much.Char grilled corn on the cob sprinkled with cheese and herb butter
