Cook time

8 min.

  • 1⁄4 cup lime juice
  • Pinch of sugar
  • 1 large garlic clove, chopped to a paste with some salt
  • 1 tsp finely chopped fresh thyme leaves
  • 1⁄2 tsp smoked paprika
  • Salt and pepper
  • 5 large ears of corn, husk and silks removed
  • Canola oil

Whisk lime juice, sugar, garlic, thyme, paprika, and 1⁄2 tsp salt and 1⁄4 tsp pepper in a large bowl. Let sit at room temperature to allow flavors to meld while you grill the corn.

Heat grill to high. Brush corn with canola oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill on all sides until lightly charred, about 4 minutes. Place on a cutting board and let cool for 5 minutes.

Slice crosswise into 1 1⁄2-inch disks, add to the bowl with vinaigrette, and toss to coat. Let sit until ready to serve.
