Cajun Corn

The corn on the cob looked and smelled great at the market this weekend! So I grabbed some and since it's too hot to heat up the kitchen I'll fire up the grill!
Peel the husks back, clean off the silk, then rub them with room temperature butter and sprinkle liberally with Emeril's Essence!
Put the husks back in place and wrap them in foil. 
On to a medium grill for 20 minutes or so...
The Essence has cayenne which adds a little heat, and thyme that adds an interesting flavor to the corn.
Every griller has his/her own method for corn, I find this to be very easy, worry free and flavorful!
Sooooo wishing I had a garden tomato to go with it...

Making your own spice mixes not only saves money, but it helps you use up the spices you have,
fresher spices = more flavor! I just make a half batch at a time. Have fun!

Emeril's Essence


  • 2 1/2 tablespoons paprika
  • 2 tablespoons salt
  • 2 tablespoons garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 tablespoon dried leaf oregano
  • 1 tablespoon dried thyme
1/4 recipe for a little under 3 Tblsp:
2 tsp paprika
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp garlic powder
3/4 tsp pepper
3/4 tsp onion powder
3/4 tsp cayenne powder-or to taste, I add a few shakes
3/4 tsp oregano
3/4 tsp thyme


Combine all ingredients thoroughly and store in an airtight jar or container.
(Sprinkle this on popcorn for something really fun and different!)

I'm joining Foodie Friday and the Summer Grilling Exchange at Family Balance Sheet with this recipe.
Hope you love it if you try it!

    Girl, I was visiting Victoria (things i learned from bear) and I found you...your blog name just jumped right out at me...I love it!
    Then I came here and just fell in love with your funny posts :)
    You would have a blast with us Cajuns down here in Louisiana!!!
    I'm sure right about now, it's feeling a lot like Louisiana up there. I see on the weather channel that it's HOT HOT HOT over there.
    Wishing you some relief...

  7. How easy...and looks delicious too!!!

  8. I have to confess that I love fresh corn and often eat it cold for breakfast in the summer when I have leftovers in the fridge. This sounds delicious and I like to kick it up a notch with a little heat now and then. Thanks for sharing.

  9. Copied your Essence recipe. I think I have everything! Yeah! Must try this on the corn.

    Thanks for stopping by Applejack Lane. I have just started to follow you so I can keep up with your "happenings".

  10. Corn on the cob, delicious!
    Love the spices too.

  11. I will be getting some of this spice to try. I just found a new way for corn on the cob and shared it this week. You may want to stop by. It was very good and you can win some for yourself.
