BBQ – Corn on the Cob with Chile, Goat Cheese, and Ham
Corn on the Cob with Chile, Goat Cheese, and Ham
A wrap of salty ham complements sweet corn on the cob while goat cheese spiked with vinegar, garlic, and fresh red Chile adds heat and tang.
2 oz. (1/4 cup) fresh goat cheese, at room temperature
1 to 2 Tbs. minced fresh hot red chile
1/2 tsp. red wine vinegar
1/2 tsp. granulated sugar
1/4 tsp. minced garlic
4 ears corn, shucked
4 very thin slices Serrano ham or prosciutto
Prepare a medium-high (400°F to 475°F) charcoal or gas grill fire for direct grilling.
Combine the goat cheese, chile, vinegar, sugar, garlic, and 1/4 tsp. salt in a small bowl until well blended.
Grill the corn, turning occasionally, until charred in places and crisp-tender, about 8 minutes.
Slather the corn with the goat cheese mixture. Wrap 1 slice ham around each ear, spiraling it from bottom to top.
