The Vietnamese Grilled Corn with Scallion Oil (Bap nuong mo hanh) is an ideal side to any meal, from everyday meals to backyard BBQ. A bit of char, and a bit of scallion oil increase the sweetness of corn quite a bit.
This blog is one of the most enjoyable projects I’ve ever worked on as I am able to be able to share it with my readers, as well as my loved ones and my families. It’s a topic I discuss often with my friends and it’s important to them that they are the same way I do. I also get some of some of the most innovative ideas to write blog articles. For instance this dish for Vietnamese barbecued corn (bap nuong) was suggested by a acquaintance of mine. He explained to me that this was something his mom cooks every day. It was awe-inspiring since I’d never heard of this delicious and easy recipe for corn. I was convinced that I needed to make sure to make it available to others.
Grilling is among the most enjoyable methods of enjoying freshly sweet corn. I’ve written about a number of well-known Vietnamese dishes that make use of corn previously, including chili corn, chicken, sauteed corn and sweet corn pudding (Che Bap). Today’s recipe is a very simple and popular street food item that you can find here: grilled corn with the oil of scallion. It’s called ” bap nuong mo hanh“.
This dish’s corn that has been grilled is succulent and juicy with a slight charcoal. We then drizzle it with a delicious scallion oil that takes only minutes to cook.
This Vietnamese grill corn recipe is made with only a few ingredients:
- ears of sweet corn ears
- chopped scallion
- vegetable oil
It is possible to grill the whole Corn on the Cob, or cut it into smaller pieces. I cook on a stovetop grill pan, and I like cutting the corn into 2 inch long sections , then chop into half. You are free to keep it as is or cut it the way you like or grill it in its entirety and then chop it before serving.
Making Scallion Oil
The Vietnamese oil of scallion (Mỡ Hành) is an excellent ingredient to add to numerous Vietnamese grilling dishes, like pork chops grilled, grilled eggplant as well as grilling shellfish. Simply heat cooking oil until it’s hot, then add chopped scallops.
The oil must be hot enough that, once it is added the scallion will begin to sizzle right away. Cook for a couple of minutes to tenderize the scallion and then transfer the oil mix into a bowl that is clean as soon as the scallion still appears bright green.
The making of Vietnamese Grilled Corn
I prefer to soak the corn in water that is lightly salted for around 10 minutes. This will help the corn not dry out as quickly when grilling. Then grilling, cook the corn on moderate heat, turning it every few minutes to ensure an even cooking. The corn should be brushed with a small amount of liquid from the oil scallion mix every time you rotate.
Just before you remove it from grilling, use a brush and sprinkle the scallion and oil in the mixture on the corn. It will take a while until you are able to sense the aroma of the oil from the scallion.
