Sweet and juicy corn kernels pair well with spicy Cajun seasonings. Grilling adds a slight smoky flavor.

  • 1 tablespoon Cajun seasoning
  • 2 or 3 drops red pepper sauce

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    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.
  • tip 2
    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.
