You call it grilled corn on the cob, we call it Mayi Boukannen!

In Haiti, one of cheapest and most good for you food you can buy in the streets is Mayi Boukannen, simple grilled corn on the cob. For as little as $5 Haitian gourdes, you can eat your grilled corn an be on your way.

Mayi Boukannen Haiti (Grilled corn)

Compared to the recipes I've seen online about grilled corn on the cob, in Haiti, we do not add any oil, salt or butter to the corn when we grill it.

Nope... We eat our mayi boukannen all "naturel".

  1. Remove the husks
  2. remove the silk
  3. place it on the "recho"
  4. turn it a couple of times
  5. then VOILA...

How's that for organic and good for you?

Note: Corn is rich a source of vitamin A, vitamin B, vitamin E and many minerals like phosphorous, magnesium, manganese, zinc, iron and copper

Corn has a high fiber content, it is a good food to eat if you want to add more fiber to your diet.
