Mario Batali's Corn as Italians Would Eat It
  • 6 ears corn (shucked)
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 to 1 1/2 cups freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint
  • Hot red pepper flakes
  • Preheat a gas grill or prepare a fire in a charcoal grill.
  • Place the corn on the hottest part of the grill and cook for 3 minutes, or until grill marks appear on the first side. Roll each ear over a quarter turn and cook for 2 to 3 minutes, then repeat two more times.
  • Meanwhile, mix the oil and vinegar on a large flat plate.
  • Spread the Parmigiano on another flat plate.
  • When the corn is cooked, roll each ear in the oil and vinegar mixture, shake off the extra oil, and dredge in the Parmigiano to coat lightly.
  • Place on a platter, sprinkle with the mint and pepper flakes, and serve immediately.
