This Asian-inspired Ginger Soy Grilled Corn recipe is sure to be a big hit at your next cookout! Serve it alongside our Teriyaki Beef Kabobs with Peppers and Onions or Ginger Soy Beef with Chile Tomatoes for a delicious grilled meal.
Our Asian Ginger Soy Grilled Corn was actually inspired by the Ginger Soy Beef with Chile Tomatoes we posted a couple years ago. Those kabobs continue to be a fan favorite today. I think this grilled corn on the cob recipe is going to be a big hit, too. The idea of grilling corn on the cob can seem intimidating, but it’s really so easy. And leftovers can be cut off the cob and used in fresh summer salads, which Mr. Juggling Act loves. The honey in this recipe adds a little sweetness, while the ginger and soy sauce bring the bold Asian flavor. So, so good!
Ginger Soy Grilled Corn
Here’s how to make Ginger Soy Grilled Corn for two… though I recommend doubling the recipe, even for two people because leftovers are delicious!
2 Corn on the cob
1 – 2 teaspoons fresh ginger, grated
2 tablespoons soy sauce
¼ cup butter, melted
1 tsp garlic, minced
1.5 tsp honey
½ tsp sesame oil
for garnish, sesame seeds
Clean and remove husks from corn.
Grill corn on high, directly on the grate. Turn every minute or so to get nice caramelization on the corn. You want a little char, but take care not to burn it.
In a bowl, combine all ingredients except the sesame seeds and mix well.
When corn is done grilling, immediately brush the sauce over the corn liberally, turning often to cover the cob completely
Sprinkle with sesame seeds, if desired. Serve hot and enjoy!
How easy is that? Big flavor and an impressive looking side dish, but simple as can be! I hope you enjoy this Ginger Soy Grilled Corn as much as our family does. Be sure to pin this recipe for later!
