Quick Grilled Corn with Spicy Sauce

Summer is almost over and I still have corn on my mind.  Here is an easy recipe to relish some corn these last days of summer.   I love the flavor and look of grilled corn, but I don't have a grill.  I also don't like that it takes some time to grill the corn so I decided to find a fast and easy way to get the grilled corn look and eat it with a spicy sauce.  I love the microwave method of cooking corn.  You can make one ear of corn when ever you get the craving and slather it with some spicy sauce for a quick snack. 

Salt and Black pepper to taste


2 Tbs mayonnaise
1 Tbs sour cream
1-2 Tbs sriacha sauce
1-2 of fresh lime juice
pinch of garlic powder
black pepper

Green onions
Parmesan or Mexican cotija cheese (optional)

 Microwave corn. See cooking notes below.  Place cooked corn on a grill or right on a gas stove top and lightly char the outside of the corn kernels.  Apply with melted butter, salt and black pepper.  Serve with a slather of spicy sauce.  Enjoy.

Cooking Notes:
Microwave Corn Method:  Husk and clean corn.  Place a dry paper towel around corn and run under faucet to wet the paper towel until well saturated.  Place on a microwave safe plate and cook in microwave for 3-5 minutes in on high.  I like my corn crisp... so 3 minutes is good.
