pile of bbq corn coated in spices on a tray with lime segments and dipping sauce


  • 1.5 tsp sea salt
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 ½ tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp black pepper

  • Grill the corn on all sides until slightly charred and cooked through - about 10 minutes.
  • Serve with lime wedges and your favorite dipping sauce.


  • Make sure your corn is fresh as it can shrink when placed in a hot grill
  • Make sure to preheat the grill so you get a nice char all over
  • Feel free to adjust the spice mix and make it your own. There will be some leftover.
  • Serve with other grilled veggies, salads or as a side
