Good concept but the marinade did not really stay with the corn through grilling. There was only a light flavor overall not worth the work to prepare. Read More

I left this to marinate overnight and it was really bad. I don't know if I did something wrong but when I put it on the grill it just got really hard. Maybe the corn was bad. Read More

For all the trouble it's worth it really doesn't do much. I was disappointed by this recipe. Read More

I must admit this recipe made my corn tastier than usual (usual meaning I don't marinate it) but there was no sweet coconut milk flavor to it so I was a bit disappointed with that. To the person that said the corn was hard I think it was the corn or maybe you didn't cook long enough. We cook it longer than 15 min. Read More
