I’m a big fan of flavored mayonnaise on grilled sweet corn. Specially when it is nice and spicy, with just a hint of citrus. Like this Sriracha mayonnaise. All of my favorite things in a creamy sauce slathered over corn. Get a napkin or two, because you’re definitely going to need them.
The Sriracha mayo isn’t just great on corn either. It’s fantastic on grilled chicken or turkey burgers. Leave out the lime and slather it on hamburger buns. And if you’re into dipping your fries in mayonnaise, this one will definitely wake you up.
Grilled corn is a wonderful thing. And not just on the cob, either. It’s great in a creamed dish, such as my grilled cream corn with Gorgonzola cheese.
