Over the memorial day weekend we grilled out a few times with friends. Our friend Ross brought over some ears of corn and prepared them using this recipe. It was so good, we made it again for another cookout.

1. Preheat outdoor grill.
2. Combine mayo, lime juice, cayenne pepper, and paprika in a bowl. Whisk until smooth. Store in fridge until ready.
3. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Boil corn in water for 3-5 minutes. Drain corn.
4. Place ears of corn on hot grill and cook until the kernels begin to caramelize 2-3 minutes. Turn corn to grill all sides.
