Ingredients

  • 6 ears sweet corn husk and silks removed
  • olive oil for brushing on the corn
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1 jalapeno seeded and roughly chopped
  • 2 tbsp cilantro roughly chopped
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 3 tbsp heavy cream
  • grated fresh parmesan and chopped cilantro for serving

Instructions

  • Preheat the BBQ to medium heat.
  • In a blender combine the sour cream, jalapeno, cilantro, lime juice and cream.  Blend until smooth.  Transfer to a small serving bowl; set aside.
  • In a large pot, bring an inch of water to a boil.  Add as many cobs as will nicely fit (you may need to work in batches), and steam the corn for 10 minutes.
  • Remove the corn from the pot with tongs (careful, it's very hot!) and brush lightly with some olive oil before placing it on the grill.  Grill for 5-6 minutes until you have some nice grill marks.
  • Transfer the corn to a platter and drizzle with the crema.  Generously sprinkle with parmesan cheese.  Serve immediately.
