Tips and Tricks

Rather than using canned corn, use freshly grilled corn on the cob.
Take 2 ears of corn, peeled. Preheat the grill to 375 ° F (190 ° C). Rub the corn with a touch of olive oil then place on the hot grill and cook until lightly toasted on all sides, about 10-12 minutes. Once cool, separate the kernels from the cob with a knife and place them on a plate. You can also cook this corn in your grill pan over medium-high heat for about 12-14 minutes, so that it cooks evenly on all sides.
