• 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon mirin
  • 4 ears corn, in their husks


  1. Mix together the soy sauce and mirin in a bowl to make the marinade; set aside.

  2. Preheat a grill to medium. Place the corn directly on the grate. Grill for about 20 minutes, turning about every 5 minutes. Transfer the corn to a cutting board. When the husks are cool enough to touch, shuck them. Return the corn to the grill and brush with the marinade. Grill for about 2 more minutes, turning the corn every 30 seconds, and brushing with more marinade. The corn will begin to caramelize and brown; be careful not to burn. Serve immediately.
