What’s the best way to cook corn on the cob? Grill it! Here’s how to make grilled corn on the cob, and a few fancy topping ideas.



For the grilled corn

  • 4 ears corn

For the harissa feta topping (optional)

  • ¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • ½ cup mild harissa (we used Mina harissa)
  • ½ cup feta cheese crumbles
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt (optional)


  1. Heat a grill to medium high. Shuck the corn.
  2. Chop the cilantro. In a small bowl, combine the mild harissa, feta cheese crumbles, and 2 tablespoons cilantro. Taste and add ¼ teaspoon kosher salt as desired (depending on the saltiness of the harissa).
  3. Place the corn on the grill and cook until it begins to blacken (4 to 5 minutes), then turn. Continue cooking and turning until all sides are blackened.
  4. When the corn is done, place it on a baking sheet and spread the harissa feta sauce over all sides of the corn (forewarning: this will be messy). Sprinkle with additional cilantro to garnish, then serve.
