Recipe: Oven-Roasted Corn on the Cob

For me, roasted corn on the cob has always been outdoors on the BBQ. Sadly, (insert violin music here) outdoor grilling is not always an option for me and that’s when I get creative. This came about one evening while preparing dinner, and as usual I was pressed for time. In need of a side dish this corn seemed to be the perfect fit. It takes minutes to prepare and while the corn was roasting I prepared a few ounces of pan seared salmon.

Here’s your quick and easy guide to Oven Roasted Corn on the Cob.
