Grilled Parmesan Corn!

 

 
 
This takes corn on the cobb and kicks it up about 3 levels.  It is absolutely amazing and it's easy as can be!   Use a nice sweet corn for this, something like Peaches and Cream Sweet Corn or Silver Queen is really good or whatever you have available in your area.   Here is what you will need:
 
6 ears of fresh sweet corn, husked and silked
1/4 cup mayonnaise (can substitute butter)
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
Cajun seasoning or seasoned salt
black pepper
 

Spread a thin layer of mayonnaise on the surface of the corn all over.  This might sound weird, but it turns out so good.  If you just don't do mayonnaise, use softened butter.  Lay the corn on a sheet of foil big enough to wrap around it twice to keep it from burning.   Sprinkle liberally with grated Parmesan cheese all over.   You know, the kind in the green can!   Then sprinkle all around  with the Cajun seasoning, I used Tony Chachere's Creole seasoning, or if you don't like the spiciness, use seasoned salt! 
Roll those babies up and fold the ends so none of the goodness leaks out.  Place directly on a medium high grill and grill for about 10 minutes, turning several times so they don't burn. 
 
 Carefully remove from the grill with tongs.  Allow to set for about 3-5 minutes and then carefully open them up.  It's easiest to do this with your kitchen shears. 
 
This is so good with grilled steaks, chicken or even burgers!
