Braaied Corn On The Cob


This truly South-African side dish will be a hit at your next braai.

8 cobs of corn, husks & silk removed
60 g melted butter
30 g fresh basil, torn
2.5 ml brown sugar
2.5 ml garlic & herb seasoning
1 ml paprika
freshly ground black pepper

knobs of butter
fresh basil, torn

  1. Combine the melted butter, basil, sugar and spices in a mixing bowl.
  2. Place each cob of corn in it’s own sheet of foil.
  3. Brush each cob of corn generously with the butter mixture.
  4. Wrap each cob tightly in the tin foil.
  5. Place the corn cobs on the braai and cook for about 20 minutes, making sure to turn the cobs often or they will burn.
  6. Transfer the corn to a serving dish and place a small knob of butter and a little fresh basil on each cob.

Serves 6

Wrap 1 or 2 pieces of rindless bacon around each of the cobs before you wrap them in foil and roast on the grill over the fire for about 20 minutes.
