Expert Tips

Use corn at its very freshest for maximum sweetness and juiciness. Fresh-picked corn with plump kernels will give you the best Cajun corn! If the corn isn't just-picked, soak it in cold water to help tenderize it and prevent the husks from burning. As little as 15 minutes helps, or it can be soaked up to 2 hours.

The most popular red pepper sauce is made in Louisiana-Cajun country! For those who have a hankering for hot, sprinkle corn with a couple drops of red pepper sauce after grilling.
