Wrapping ears of corn with bacon and sprinkling a mixture of cayenne and coarse salt makes this side dish especially flavorful.
Heat broiler. In a small bowl, combine cayenne pepper and salt. Sprinkle corn with half cayenne-salt mixture and wrap each piece with 1/2 slice bacon, securing ends with a toothpick.
Broil corn on a rimmed baking sheet, turning frequently, until bacon is crisp and corn is tender, 9 to 10 minutes. Sprinkle with remaining cayenne-salt mixture.
