See post on how to pick fresh sweet corn. Remove husks just before grilling. Place directly on hot side of grill for a few minutes on each side, till slightly charred.
Remove corn allow to cool a couple minutes. Using a pastry brush, spread Mexican crema on corn. Then top with crumbled Cotija cheese, sprinkle paprika, and chopped cilantro. Serve with lime wedges to squeeze on top.
