Looking for a fabulous summer side? I’m always on the quest for great picnic/BBQ items especially this time of year.

Roasted corn becomes even more tasty with harissa (Moroccan red pepper sauce) mixed with creamy butter….

This corn can be just as easily roasted in the oven or cooked on the grill.

Each piece is smothered in harissa butter then individually wrapped in tin foil. Heat in a 400 degree oven for about 25-35 minutes. I was sent this Mina Harissa to sample & I love it! I used the mild version in this recipe.
