Grilled Corn with Green Onions

This Grilled Corn with Green Onions might be the most uncommon dish at your barbeque or dinner table, but it's sure to take your family's taste buds on a flavor trip.


Makes 6 to 8


6 ears corn, with husk
1 bunch green onion, outer skin removed, chopped


  1. Preheat grill to medium. Peel back the husks of the corn without removing them. Remove the silks and recover the corn with the husk.
  2. Soak the corn overnight in a gallon of well-salted cold water (minimum 30 minutes). Make sure corn is completely submersed.
  3. Light charcoal or gas grill. When coals have burned down, grill the corn in the husk, turning several times, for 30 minutes.
  4. Toss the scallions in olive oil and place in grill. Grill until just charred.
