  1. Soak corn in cold water for 1 to 3 hours.
  2. Stir together macadamia nut oil and melted butter in a bowl. Season with garlic, rosemary, sage, basil, thyme, salt, and pepper; stir in Parmesan cheese.
  3. Drain corn and pat dry. Spread butter mixture evenly over each ear of corn, and place each piece on a square of aluminum foil. Tightly wrap each ear and puncture to allow excess steam to escape while grilling.
  4. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat.
  5. Grill the corn cobs until tender, about 20 to 30 minutes, turning frequently. Remove from the grill and check for doneness; if the corn is not done, continue cooking an additional 5 minutes.


  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

I absolutely LOVE this recipe!! Forget the macadamia oil - it's not needed! This is great on corn on the cob, even good on canned corn! We drain canned corn & put on aluminum foil. Pour some of ...

Fantastic! For over 30 years I've grilled corn in foil with only butter, salt, and pepper. Now I have a new recipe. For those having trouble getting the corn just right, you need to time your...

Fantastic. Great taste. Great because you can make it ahead before your company arrives. Good with any meat grilled. I even used the cheap canned parmesean I had on hand and it was fantastic (wi...

Simply delicious! There's nothing quite like grilled corn on the cob during the summer. I soaked my corn in cold water mixed with a little sugar and salt and left the corn in the husks. I soften...
