Grilled Corn with Cilantro Lime Butter
What's your Take?
Prep Time 20 minutes Cook Time 10 minutes

There's nothing better than a perfectly cooked sweet ear of corn slathered with salty butter in the summer. My family waits all year long for corn season and when it hits we have corn on the cob at least once a week. My favorite way to cook corn is to grill it. Grilling it in the husk steams the corn and creates a delicious bite that bursts with sweetness. Top that warm ear of corn with a salty bright herb butter such as cilantro lime and you have the ultimate easy summer cookout side dish!

What you'll need

  • 4 ears of corn in their husks
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped
  • zest of 1 lime, grated
  • 1 teaspoon lime juice
  • 1/4 teaspon salt
Notes:

How to make it

  4. Place the corn still in their husks on the grill. Cover, leaving the vents open if using charcoal, and grill for 12 minutes turning occasionaly for even cooking.
