Grilled Corn with Coconut-Soy-Chile Glaze and Roasted Peanuts

A spicy-sweet glaze and the crunch of salty peanuts make this grilled corn one you'll crave

Inspired by Thai flavors, this grilled corn is brushed with an intensely flavored glaze made with coconut milk, soy sauce, brown sugar, lime zest and juice, and chile-garlic sauce in final minutes over the flame. The sugar in the glaze caramelizes and sticks to the corn as it grills. When the corn comes off the grill, it is brushed with more glaze and dusted with finely ground dry-roasted peanuts. Note: If you can’t find jarred chile-garlic sauce, sambal oelek or sriracha would be great substitutes.
