  • 4 ears of corn
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup sun-dried tomatoes chopped
  • 1 garlic clove finely minced
  • 2 tablespoons of grated parmesan cheese plus more for garnish
  • 1 tablespoon of fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon of paprika
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 8 - 10 basil leaves finely chopped


  • Mix the sour cream, sun-dried tomatoes, garlic, parmesan cheese, lemon juice, paprika, and oregano in a bowl. Set aside.
  • Partially shuck the corn by pulling back the green husk and keeping attached. Remove as much of the strings as possible.
  • Preheat the grill to high. Once it is hot, place the corn directly onto the grill and close the cover. Turn the corn 90 degrees every 2-3 minutes until the kernels are slightly charred
  • Lay your cooked corn on a plate and spoon your sauce over the top of the corn. Sprinkle a little extra parmesan on top along with some freshly chopped basil and extra red pepper flakes.
