Here’s a recipe so simple, I only needed to take 4 pictures.

Forget boiling hot water on the stove for overcooked corn on the cob. Preheat the oven to 400°F and set the corn, still in its husk, directly on the rack, and cook for 20-30 minutes.

Season with paprika, coriander, garlic powder, thyme, and a dash of salt and pepper. And that’s it – seriously! I served mine alongside a nice slab of bison steak with cowboy seasoning and some mini crab cakes for a twist on land and sea!

  • Preheat the the oven to 400°F Remove the brown hairs and loose leaves from the corn cob, leaving at least 1 layer of leaves intact.
  • Place corn into the oven for 20-30 minutes and cook until outside leaves appear dried.
  • Remove from the oven and carefully strip the cob of leaves and hairs – the hairs should pull away with the husks easily.
  • Butter and sprinkle on the spices and herbs, serve immediately and enjoy!
