  1. Remove the husks of the corn. To boil, fill a stockpot halfway with water and bring to a boil. Gently drop corn into boiling water. Bring back to boil and cook corn for 2 to 3 minutes.
  2. To grill instead of boiling, preheat outdoor grill or indoor cast-iron griddle on medium-high heat. When hot, lightly oil grates and place corn on grill. Grill for about 5 minutes or until kernels begin to blacken, turning frequently.
  3. Baste hot corn with mayonnaise, then season with Parmesan and chili powder.
  4. Serve with lime wedges.

Makes 4 servings.
