Eating your BBQ corn right off the cob is so satisfying! Plus, the smokiness from the grill only adds to the depth of flavour to those sweet ears. Most people paint their corns with the good ol’ classic salt and butter before gnawing away. However, why limit yourself when a BBQ grilled corn on the cob is basically a blank canvas! Therefore, for your next BBQ party, you may want to skip the butter and get creative with one of these 3 ways to top your cobs.

Korean Spice

Add a bit of Korean flare to your corn on the cob by generously drizzling mayonnaise and gochujang (a sweet-and-savoury Korean condiment) over your BBQ corn. Then, sprinkle some sliced green onion and toasted sesame seeds for some final touches and it is ready to be served!

Maple Mustard

In love with your breakkie pancakes? Then this will be a perfect topping for you! For this, you just need to simply mix equal parts of grainy mustard and maple syrup. This combination will make your BBQ party guests beg for a second serving.

Cacio y Pepe

Italians know that the best way to top their pasta is simply with the basic ingredients – butter, Parmesan, salt and pepper. Thus, what we did here is to adopt their mentality and apply it onto your BBQ corn! Slather your cob with butter, then sprinkle liberally with finely grated Parmesan cheese. Finally, season with fresh ground pepper and a pinch of salt.
