Grilled Corn with Cilantro-Lime Butter

What You Need:

  • 1/2 c. unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1/4 c. chopped fresh cilantro leaves
  • 3 cloves garlic, pressed
  • zest of 1 lime
  • 1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 8 ears corn
  • 1 Tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 lime, cut into wedges

What To Do:

  1. In a medium bowl, combine butter, cilantro, garlic, lime zest and paprika; season with salt and pepper, to taste. Set aside.
  2. Preheat grill to medium heat. Peel back outer husks, leaving them attached at the base of the ear; do not remove inner husks. Remove and discard silks; rinse corn and pat dry using paper towels.
  3. Brush corn with canola oil; season with salt and pepper, to taste. Add corn to grill; cover and cook, turning occasionally, until husks are slightly charred and corn is tender, about 12-15 minutes.*
  4. Peel down husks and spread with butter mixture.
  5. Serve immediately with lime wedges.
