Grilled Street Corn

Grilled Street Corn

Seriously, there is nothing better. All summer this has been my comfort. I’m so in love with finding new ways to make street corn and it all comes out completely irresistible! But there is something to be said about the old standby.

This delicious treat is everywhere in San Francisco whether you’re in the Mission or the Marina, it’s a fan favorite for all. A couple of restaurants I love snagging this at includes The Front Porch {A Cajun comfort joint that’s super funky and super tasty.} Ricky Bobby {A gastro-pub-bar that does everything from Heirloom Tomato Caprese to the best Pork Tenderloin Sandwich I’ve ever had. A total low key fun place that’s cranking out incredible food.} Both places you need to check out if you ever get the chance.

I’ve made a very similar dish before but instead of using mayonnaise, I used red pepper jelly. My Red Pepper Jelly Street Corn is a sweet and savory rendition that will blow your mind. But let’s start with the traditional street corn.
