Corn on the cob

Here is another preview recipe from my cookbook that will be on sale September 2012.

I discovered this easy and delicious recipe a few months ago while eating in one of my favorite restaurants in Manhattan, Café Habana. I have to admit that Ceesie never had a corn on the cob before and never heard of it either.

But it's just so delicious, so healthy and so easy to make that I had to put it in my cookbook.

What we need:

- 4 corns, silk removed

- 1 cup Cotija cheese or Parmesan cheese

- 1 tablespoon chili powder

- 1 tablespoon paprika powder

- 1 teaspoon salt

- 1 teaspoon ground black pepper

- 4 wedges lime

- 2 tablespoons olive oil

Combine in a little bowl the pepper, salt, chili powder and the paprika powder and put on the side.

Put on your grill at high heat. Pull the shell from the corn and put the corn for 10 minutes in cold water. After that you put the corn for about 10 minutes on the grill. Turn around every 2 minutes till all the sides of the corn are grilled and the yellow seeds are tender and starting to look brown.

When the corn is ready you let it rest for about 2 minutes and you grease the corn in with olive oil. You also sprankle the spice mix on the cob . When all of that is done you roll the corn in the cheese and ready you are.

Serve with 2 slices of lime and ENJOY!
