Spicy Roasted Corn

serves 4

This recipe for spicy roasted corn comes from a NYT recipe for Sheet-Pan Chicken Thighs with Spicy Corn. The dish is delish as is, but the corn is stellar on its own too. I’ve made the dish twice, the second time I modified quantities to make flavors pop more (and actually feed 4 people)…see my version here.

  • 8 ears of fresh corn kernels
  • 2/3 cup chopped pickled jalapeños, plus brine from the jar/can (there wasn’t much left in the can so I used them all)
  • 6 TBL olive oil
  • 1½ t salt
  • 10 scallions, thinly sliced (I used all parts, not just the white ends)
  • 1 cup chopped fresh basil
  • Heat oven to 425°
  • In a medium bowl, toss together the corn, pickled jalapeños, olive oil, salt and half of the scallions; save the remaining scallions for serving
  • Spoon corn mixture onto an empty baking sheet and drizzle with a tad more olive oil
  • Roast corn for 15 minutes, stirring once while roasting
  • Turn the broiler on high and broil for 2 to 4 minutes (watch carefully so it doesn’t burn, though a little blistering is nice
