  • Grill or oven – Set grill to high or set oven to 375°F 
  • Garlic butter – Melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Then add the garlic and cook for 20 seconds until it smells amazing! Remove from the stove and keep warm/liquid.
  • Seasoning – mix all your dry seasonings in a small bowl and set aside.
  • Season corn – Place corn in a large bowl. Toss with olive oil. Then sprinkle the seasoning over gradually, tossing in between, to coat as evenly as possible. 
  • If using grill: Place corn on the BBQ kernel side down. Cook for 8 minutes or until you get charred spots – watch it curl into "ribs"! Then cook each cut side for 1 minute.
  • If using oven – Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, kernel side up. (Note: the corn doesn't curl as much, also, no charred spots).
  • Butter it – Transfer corn back into the bowl. Pour over garlic butter and toss.
  • Serve – Pile onto a plate, sprinkle with parsley, then grab and eat like ribs!
