Kicked Up Corn On The Cob!

Fresh Corn on the Cob is a true summer treat and while it's hard to beat good ole butter, salt and pepper, I wanted to try some new flavors. Each ear was cooked and rolled in butter then I simply sprinkled the seasonings on them. I used (from top to bottom) Old Bay, my Homemade Cilantro Salt and Lawry's Chile and Garlic. I did taste all of them (oh the things I do for this blog:@) and they were all great, the one that made me say "wow" though was the Cilantro Salt-it had a bright fresh burst of flavor!
 Tip: If you're serving a lot of corn simply lay a whole stick of butter on a plate 
and let folks roll the ear over it. Works great!

1. Cook the corn your favorite way.
2. Roll in butter and sprinkle with seasoned salts:
I used Homemade Cilantro Salt, Old Bay Seasoning and Lawry's Chile & Garlic Seasoned Salt. And as a wink and nod to the title here's a link to an old post for grilled corn using a homemade version of Emeril's Essence-Cajun Corn on the Cob.

  1. We won't have local corn for another month and I can't wait until it shows up at our farmer's market. Your photo is making my mouth water, Lynn.

  7. A perfect recipe for 4th of July week! Funny about the stick of butter and the corn...when I was a kid, I remember going to someone's house and they did that, I'd never seen it before. Have a great 4th of July.

  13. I haven't ever heard of cilantro salt but I imagine it would taste pretty good on corn.

  14. We love us some corn on the cob! I cook it so easy, too. Cut both ends off...leave in the husk. Wrap a damp paper towel around it. Microwave 2 1/2 minutes. VOILA! It's done to perfection! 4 minutes for 2 cornies! (place in sick to unhusk and take the silks off!) Sweet hugs!

  17. I was just going to say "What? NO cayenne pepper??...no jalapeno butter...no Cajun/Creole salt??" LOL

    They all look good to me & I appreciate the sacrifices you make for us all. *tee-hee*

    I've been nuking ours just like Lavender Dreamer said, but after I wrap in damp paper towel, I then nuke it & wait till I take it OUT of the microwave to then cut off the ends. Soooo much easier! Hold it by the top ends with the silks & just shake it over a plate. VIOLA! Like magic...no silks & cooked to perfection with no loss of vitamins in water.

  21. My family would love it. We're just big old corn on the cob eaters around here, too.

    (And the rolling butter way is the way we serve it, too.)

    Just followed you on bloglovin' ,but since I generally use the dashboard and/or my sideboard, I wasn't going to lose you anyway. I can't lose you. You feed my family. Ha!

  23. Oh you're so funny with the things you do for your blog!!! Thanks for taste testing all the ears of corn for us. The cilantro salt does sound good! I'm still using the garlic chile salt on my morning egg...mmmm! Now the question is, do you eat across the corn from one end to the other or around and around? I love to watch my family!
