When we have BBQ meals, we always have a side of grilled corn. The meal just doesn’t feel complete without a side of yummy grilled corns. Fresh and naturally sweet corn is a wonderful side dish for both children and adults. Our recent favorite corn recipe is Grilled Corn with Miso Butter using Hikari Miso‘s Organic Saikyo Sweet Miso.
I received many positive feedback about my miso recipes from readers who had thought miso is only for making miso soup. The Japanese use miso paste for soup, marinade, dressing, sauce, pickling, and its importance as an ingredient is similar to soy sauce! With my recent partnership with my favorite brand of miso, Hikari Miso, I look forward to sharing more miso recipes with you as I experiment with miso.
Today I used Saikyo Miso (sweet white miso, 西京味噌), which originated from the Kyoto area and commonly used in Kyoto or Western Japan (Kansai region). If you like the flavor of Saikyo Miso, try this delicious Miso Cod recipe.
For the corn, you can remove husk completely before grilling, but today I kept it on so the grilled corn would look a little nicer for the photography. I hope you give this recipe a try this summer!
Hikari Miso products will be available in Amazon soon (some are available already). You can also buy Hikari Miso products in Japanese grocery stores (my local Japanese and Asian stores carry their product).
