Asian Inspired Grilled Corn

I love summer. I love Summer bbqs where everyone hangs out outside playing yard games and grilling! Summer is my happy place.
One of my go-to side dishes is grilled corn; summer corn is sweet, inexpensive, easy to prepare, and always a crowd pleaser. There are so many varieties of grilled corn, but here is an asian twist to the summer dish!
What you'll need
2 medium cloves of garlic (minced on a microplane grater)
1 inch of fresh ginger (peeled and minced on a microplane grater)
2 tablespoons of soy sauce
4 tablespoons of soft butter
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
8-10 ears of fresh corn on the cobb  (shucked)
1/4 cup diced scallions

Preheat grill to medium heat. While grill is heating, mix garlic, ginger, soy sauce, butter, and lemon juice until combined in a small pot. Set aside on stove.
Place corn on grill. Cook the corn till you get a light grill on all sides. Keep rotating corn every minute or so to keep from burning for about 10 minutes.
Transfer corn to serving dish.
Turn stove with small pot of sauce on low. Stir until butter is melted and sauce is thin.
Coat the corn with sauce mixture using a brush or spoon. Sprinkle scallions over corn and serve.
Bon Appetit!
