Wordhouse WOW Grilled Corn, Asparagus & Spring Onion Salad

Posted by Milford Kitchen on Jun 22nd 2023


5 ears fresh corn, shucked and cleaned

1 bunch asparagus (about 8 ounces), woody ends removed, stalks peeled up to flower bud

2 TBSP Milford Spice Company’s Wordhouse WOW Herbs for Grilling

1 bunch spring onions or 2 bunches large scallions, trimmed

Vegetable oil

¼ cup fresh squeezed lime juice (from about 2 limes)

3 TBSP soy sauce

2 TBSP Worcestershire sauce

1 TBSP Maggi sauce

1 TBSP chile oil or hot sauce

½ tsp kosher or sea salt, plus more to taste

1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved


Heat grill to high. Lightly brush corn, asparagus and spring onions with vegetable oil. Sprinkle 2 Tbsp Milford Spice Company’s Wordhouse WOW Herbs for Grilling on them as evenly as possible, then let them sit for 10 minutes.

Place them on the grill and spread them out in one layer so they can cook evenly. Flip the vegetables a couple of times until they are charred on all sides but retain a firm bite; asparagus and spring onions should cook for about 6 to 8 minutes, depending on thickness, and corn about 12 to 15 minutes.

Remove them from the grill as they are ready, then set aside.

While the vegetables grill, combine lime juice, soy sauce, Worcestershire, Maggi, chili oil and salt in a large bowl. Whisk until fully combined. Taste and adjust salt as needed.

Once vegetables have cooled enough to handle, cut asparagus and spring onions into thirds and add them to the bowl. Shave the kernels from the corn, discarding the cobs, and add kernels to the bowl. Toss to combine with the sauce. Add the halved tomatoes and combine well. Serve warm or at room temperature. Enjoy!
