Why you may wonder, would I want to roast frozen corn. The answer is simple, I had no fresh cobs and was curious to know if it’d work.

It did work.

And it was delicious.

I was working on a recipe (Steak Salad). When I was writing that recipe and figuring out all the goodies I wanted in it, I realized I wanted freshly roasted peppers and roasted corn.

But it was December. (Yeah, long ago now.) Unfortunately fresh corn is not available in December where I live. So that left me with using either frozen or canned corn. I like both varieties and always have frozen in the freezer. I used my erroneous scientific method and determined that frozen corn would work better than canned.

Remove excess water, add seasoning, add some olive oil, toss in a hot oven, stir once or twice, and eat.

Yeah, it really doesn’t get much simpler than that. The corn gets sweet as it browns. It doesn’t quite blacken the way fresh corn does, which was the look I was going for. However, I will sacrifice those blackened bits of fresh for the browned bits of frozen. They were super sweet and did my recipe justice.

Since making it that first time, I have roasted at least 3 pounds of corn. I have come to love it that much. And I can mix up the flavors by simply adding different herbs and spices. Pick a flavor profile (Mexican, Italian, Indian, etc), add the corresponding herbs/spices, roast, and you’re in business.

This recipe is a basic one, I kept it simple by using just a bit of salt and pepper. Sometimes, simple is best. And this my friends is how to roast frozen corn.

The Key to Roasting Frozen Corn

It must be fully thawed and dried…not dried out, but no water clinging to it. My best experiences making it as been when I have put it in a colander first thing in the morning and then roast it that night for dinner. I dry it with paper towels a couple of time while it’s fully thawing.

What to Pair With Roasted Frozen Corn

Now while you wait for the recipe this was made for, I highly recommend serving it along side a delicious slab of Carne Asada, in my Grilled BBQ Chicken Quinoa Bowls, my Loaded Quinoa and Edamame Salad, or my Steak Salad in a Creamy Avocado Dressing. You’ll love it in anything that calls for corn.

Some other great pairing options would be:
