Caribbean Style Corn on the Cob

So D and I were looking for a side to have with Jerk-Style Chicken the other day.  I'm kind of bored with vegetables, and we always seem to have black beans/coconut/rice combo, so we decided to look for something else.  I found a recipe for Caribbean Style Corn on the Cob on Delishplan.com.

However, there's really no way in hell, I'm making homemade aioli.  I've been trying hard to watch what I'm eating and that just didn't fit the bill.  So I went back to looking.  D looked over the recipe and said we should have it and just use low-fat mayonnaise.  That would help a lot.

Then I was in a meeting food-planning, and decided to look up the amounts used in the Elote recipe D makes.  So I got the amounts based on that.

D grilled it, because he always grills corn.  Again, we had with Jerk-Style Chicken.
