Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes
Servings 4


  • 4 ears sweet corn
  • 1 scallion (chopped)
  • 4 tbsp. unsalted butter (at room temperature)
  • 1 tbsp. honey
  • 2 tsp. soy or tamari sauce
  • 1/4 tsp. salt


  • Strip the husks away from the top of the corn to the base, like peeling a banana. Leave the husk attached at the stem end (or you can completely discard it).
  • Remove the corn silk and fold the husk back over the stalk. Tie the husk with string or a strip of husk to form a handle.
  • Mix all ingredients for honey miso butter and set aside.
  • Heat an outdoor grill to high. Spray the grates with cooking spray or soak a paper towel in olive oil and rub over grates several times until coated.
  • Place the corn on the grill and put a sheet of aluminum foil under the husk to keep the husks from burning.
  • Brush the corn with the honey miso butter as it grills. The ears are cooked when golden brown, about 10-15 minutes.
  • Garnish with chopped scallions and serve with extra honey miso butter as option.

Quick Tip

  • It’s easier to husk corn under running water.
