Cook Corn in 3 Minutes

Our household is big on corn. Corn on the cob, corn salad, corn chowder, popcorn :-D…I especially love grilled corn on a stick. Whenever I pass by the street vendors selling them in Bali or Phuket, you will definitely see me walking away with at least one in my hand. My hubby recently sent me a link showing how to cook corn in 3 minutes and ever since, I’ve been making my own grilled corn at home! I just thought this is too good not to share. I’m sure some of you would have already seen this tip but for those who have not, enjoy!

Instead of the usually butter and salt combo, I like to dress my corn with mayonnaise, salt, chilli powder and lemon.

Take half a lemon squeeze it a little to release some of the juice. Dab a little of the salt and chili powder mixture. Rub it all over the corn. Be careful not to take on too much salt.
