Grilled Corn with Smoky Lime Butter

Here's another fun flavor combo to try this summer, Grilled Corn with Smoky Lime Butter. The smoky in the recipe calls for smoked paprika, don't hesitate to sub Chipotle powder if your crowd is into some heat. And have you tried cilantro on corn yet folks? Trust me-you do want to, it's a match made in heaven. Since I wasn't grilling out, and my corn was super fresh, I just cooked it quickly on screaming hot cast iron again. The char adds a nice flavor:@)
I think this butter would probably be good on any grilled veggie and for some reason sweet potatoes popped into my mind...

Grilled Corn with Smoky Lime Butter-from Better Homes and Gardens
8 ears of corn
1/2 C butter, softened
1 lime, zest from half and all the juice
2 Tblsp fresh cilantro or parsley, minced
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp smoked paprika
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  1. Heat grill to medium high and grill corn in husks for approx 20 minutes, turning every 5 minutes. I suggest peeling the husks back a bit and removing the silks first, then smooth the husks back over the corn.
  2. Mix everything else. Slather on peeled corn and enjoy:@)
Eat well and have a happy day!

  2. Wow, the flavor combinatio sounds wonderful, Lynn, and much better than the plain buttered corn on the cob that I made yesterday. Looks like I'll be buying some more corn to try this mouth watering recipe!

  3. I still want to attempt grilled corn. With our extreme heat this week, I think this needs to be on the menu. I don't want to heat up my kitchen after work. Thanks for sharing!

  5. Where we live the corn is plentiful and boy do we eat a lot of it. My favorite flavors, lime and cilantro, can't wait to try it with some spicy chili powder. Yum.
