  • Servings



  • ½

    cup unsweetened coconut milk

  • ¼

    cup soy sauce

  • 2

    tablespoons light brown sugar

  • 1

    tablespoon Asian fish sauce

  • 1

    tablespoon fresh lime juice

  • 4

    ears of corn, shucked

  • Chopped cilantro, for garnish

  • Finely grated Cotija cheese, for garnish

  • Lime wedges, for serving


In a small saucepan, combine the coconut milk, soy sauce, sugar, fish sauce and lime juice. Cook over moderate heat until the glaze is syrupy, about 10 minutes. Light a grill. Grill the corn over medium heat, turning occasionally, until charred and tender, 10 to 15 minutes; brush with the glaze during the last 5 minutes. Cut each corn cob into thirds, transfer to a platter and garnish with cilantro and cheese. Serve with lime wedges.
