Directions

  1. Cream butter in a bowl until smooth; mix in cilantro, lime juice, and cayenne pepper until thoroughly combined. Cover and refrigerate 1 hour to blend flavors.
  2. Peel husks back from ears of corn starting at the top, leaving the husks attached at the bottom of the ears. Remove all the corn silk and close husks over the ears again. Cover corn ears with cold water in a large bowl until husks are thoroughly soaked, about 20 minutes.
  3. Preheat grill for medium heat and lightly oil the grate.
  4. Place the corn in husks onto the hot grate and grill covered until husks are charred and the corn kernels are tender, 20 to 25 minutes, turning often. Strip off husks and serve corn with cilantro lime butter.

Family LOVED the cilantro lime butter for this recipe! Had plenty of butter left over, so I wrapped it in parchment paper, rolled into a "log" and saran wrapped it to freeze. Going to try this butter on steaks and other foods!

We love corn prepared on the grill. This butter gave the corn a delicious fresh taste. We also used the leftover butter on some garlic bread and grilled fish. Thanks, BritanyRachelle for sharing your recipe. It is a winner in our house!
