Grill over medium-high heat 10 minutes or until corn is tender and lightly charred to golden brown, turning occasionally. Cool slightly. Cut corn kernels off cob.

  • Bring 1 cup water to boil in medium saucepan on medium heat. Gently stir in shrimp; cover. Steam 5 minutes or just until shrimp turn pink. Drain and rinse under cold water. Slice shrimp in half horizontally. Add shrimp to rocoto marinade; toss to coat well. Cover. Refrigerate 30 minutes.
