Mark Bittman Corn

A few weeks ago, Mark Bittman of the NY Times had a simple article on grill corn with a Mexican touch. I'm finally getting around to trying it.

It's a good recipe with really good taste and simple. Some mayo with spice. So what's the problem? Well... I have to compare it to a plain grilled corn (see my Naked Grilled Corn post). I just love that char taste with some butter and salt and pepper. I thank is is just me being simple.


Rating:
I should be a 4 in both taste and ease but is a 3 because I'll mainly do my naked corn. A tie in taste but different. I think it is a matter of taste and what you're eating it with. A great option.

Notes: In typical Bittman style, he can be really non specific so the details are up to you (or me in this case).

Ingredients:
2 ears of sweat corn husked and cleaned
Salt and pepper to taste
Paste:
1 T mayonnaise
1/2 t lime juice
1/2 t chili powder

Instructions:
1) Grill on high and clean and oiled.
2) Mix paste. Brush on corn.
3) Grill until moderately charred. 
4) Serve hot. Salt and pepper to taste.

While I like lime and chili powder on corn, mayo seems pretty weird. I'm with you on that one.

Try it....it is amazing. I first had this at Fondita's on Long Island, a superb Mexican food stand. It seems weird but is delicious.
