Instructions Checklist
  • Cut the corn kernels from the cobs. Combine them in a bowl with the scallions, thyme, ¼ teaspoon salt, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Set aside.

  • In a medium bowl, combine the chili powder, cayenne, oil, and ½ teaspoon salt. Add the shrimp and toss to coat.

  • Heat grill or grill pan to medium and cook the shrimp, turning once, until cooked through, about 4 minutes.
