Grilled corn. A summer standby and family favorite. Although delicious straight off the cob, I thought it would be fun to highlight some other delicious ways to enjoy this summer ritual. From salsas to tacos to fritters, this might be the best grilled corn roundup ever.

But first, let’s start out with the basics. If you’ve actually never grilled corn before, here is the basic recipe:

How to grill corn:  You want to use shucked corn because it will give you the grilled flavor you’re after. If you grill it with the skin on or in foil, you don’t get that yummy char. Brush shucked ears of corn with oil (optional). Grill cobs over medium-high heat, turning often until seared in spots and fork tender, about 10 minutes. Remove from grill and season each cob with sea salt and butter, if desired.

Once you’ve got your corn grilled up, here are a few fabulous things you can do with it:
