  • 6 ears corn
  • 1/4 c mayo
  • 1/3 c sour cream
  • 1 lime
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 c grated parmesan cheese
  • Salt to taste
  • Chili powder to taste


  • Prepare the corn: Pull back the husk, leaving it attached. Remove any corn silk. Preheat a grill over medium high heat.
  • In a small bowl, stir together the mayo, sour cream, juice from half the lime, and the paprika.
  • Place the corn on the grill, grilling for 3-4 minutes before turning, until all the corn is bright yellow and charred in spots.
  • Using a basting brush, immediately brush the mayo mixture over all the corn. Squeeze the remaining half a lime over the corn. Season with salt and chili powder to taste, then sprinkle the parmesan over top. Serve immediately.
