Grilled Corn with Feta

By Katherine

That corn is a yellow belly

Remember last year when we made grilled corn and posted all those pretty pictures to go with? Some of you may vaguely recall a yellow brick road of juicy corn kernels specked with herbs, gleaming with melted butter. But my favorite pictures showed the faceless, greasy-fingered, wrinkle-shirted, farmer-tanned, working man-handed Greg getting busy with some ears. (I hope no English teachers or perverts are reading this, but I digress.)

For a tutorial on how to prepare the corn, check out that post. We’re not going to repeat the step-by-step photos, we’re too busy scouring vintage shops for Elton John sunglasses.

Feta Spread for Corn

  • 4 ounces feta
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp white wine
  • 1/2 tbsp sriracha
  • 1-2 tbsp oregano, chopped fine
  • white and black pepper to taste
  • 2-4 ears of corn

Blend ingredients in a small bowl, using a small fork to combine the ingredients and smooth out any feta clumps. Peel corn husks back, remove silk, spread paste on corn. Peel those husks back up. Cook over a medium bed of coals turning every couple of minutes until cooked and leaves have charred. Depending on how hot your fire is it should take about 10 minutes.

    Do corn in this manner quite often when we braai (barbecue as you call it)

  3. Sounds good. First time I’ve heard the name Sriacha sauce although, having Google it, I now know it for what it is.

  4. sallydillard says:

  7. Delicious.

  8. Off to look up Sriarcha but everything else is familair and looking wonderful! Well…maybe not so much Elton´s specs 😉

    Don’t tell me you already have fresh sweet corn, and if you do, I officially hate you (in a food loving kind of way) 🙂 We don’t get corn in Colorado until mid July. Anyway, with all that said, this sounds WONderful.

    I love sriracha and cheese of all types – I’ve never thought of mixing the two in a sauce but why not!

  11. TasteFood says:

    Sriracha and feta in corn husks? Love it!

  12. Mmm, we had grilled corn last night. I’ve never tried to spread anything on it before though, thanks for the idea!

  13. I adore anything “corn” and your grilled corn fits the profile for summer deliciousness. Love the additions.

  14. Courtney says:

    Ohhhh, that looks good.

  15. ChgoJohn says:

    This sounds great and I just happen to have some surplus feta in the fridge. Keep those feta recipes coming!

  16. I’ve just made some feta and can’t wait to put it on some o that there corn! You two are so funny. I love this blog.

  17. Kristy says:

    Hope you found some good sunglasses! I remember we made your corn recipe several times last summer. This looks like another good variation. :0

  18. billpeeler says:

    Great post – and what great flavors for grilled corn. Yummmmmmmmm —–

  19. No corn in sight here yet. You might want to try tucking a few basil leaves into that corn with the feta mixture. Just saying.

  20. I remember reading that post. It was exceptionally well written. And following your advice it was the first time I ever grilled corn.

    Ooo, sriracha and feta … very unexpected. I bet it’s great. I loved grilled corn. Makes we miss this Mexican restaurant in my neighborhood that closed. They had awesome grilled corn. I’m sure not as awesome as this though.

  22. PhobicFoodie says:

    Mmmmm…I love grilled corn and that recipe sounds awesome!! The super dried-out, sketchy wood deck on our current rental is probably not a wise place for a large metal container full of flaming charcoal and hot grease… 😦 I can’t wait until we have a (safe) place for our grill so we can use it more…

  23. That’s a lovely idea, Katherine! I love sriracha and feta, so I imagine I’d love them together in this!

  24. Lauren says:

    Nothing better than fresh sweet corn — mmm. We do something similar, but with queso fresco and a little chipotle aioli. My mouth is watering just thinking about it!

  25. Charles says:

    Ah, I remember the last post – still didn’t try it. I don’t have a barbecue though, and can’t do one, living in an apartment. I wonder if it would work putting them under a grill/broiler? Probably not I suppose 😦 Oh well, I’ll have to try it one day in the future when I can actually get a barbecue!

    Feta and sriracha, oh yes!
