Spicy Cilantro Corn on the Cob


Summer corn is so naturally delicious, not much preparation is needed to make it shine. Spicy paprika, fresh cilantro and salt and pepper contrast corn’s sweetness to add nuance to the flavor of the classic corn on the cob.This recipe comes to us from Jen Brody, The Domestic Diva.

Serves 4

  • 4 ears of corn, husked
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon spicy paprika
  • salt and pepper

Preheat an oven to 350 degrees.

Lay all the corn cobs out on a big sheet of aluminum foil. Drizzle with the olive oil. Coat each ear in the chopped cilantro. Season with the spicy paprika, salt and pepper.

Bring the edges of foil up around the outside of the corn to form a packet of aluminum foil which contains all 4 ears of corn. Transfer the packet to a baking sheet and roast in the oven for about 30 minutes, or until the corn is tender. Remove from the foil and enjoy!
