Easy

Gluten-Free
Vegetarian
Ingredients: 
  • 1/2 cup softened butter
  • 2 tbsp. chopped fresh herbs of your choice
  • 1/4 tsp. lime zest
  • 8 ears corn on the cob
  • - kosher salt, to taste
Instructions: 

In a small mixing bowl, combine first 3 ingredients; refrigerate several hrs. Peel off all of the husks on each ear of corn except for the layer touching the kernels; remove silk and pull remaining husks back up over corn. Soak corn in cold water about 1 hr. before grilling. Grill corn over medium heat, covered, until kernels yield gently to pressure (8-10 min.), turning each ear a quarter turn every 2 min. Carefully remove husks; serve with herb butter and salt.

Good to Know:

  • To cook corn on top of the stove, remove husks and silk. Plunge into boiling water; cook until kernels yield gently to pressure (3-5 min.). Serve immediately with herb butter and salt.
  • To microwave corn, remove husks and silk from four ears of corn. In a shallow-sided microwavable dish, melt 3 tbsp. butter; add corn, turning to coat completely with butter. Cover dish with plastic wrap. Microwave until kernels yield gently to pressure (6-8 min.). Add 2 min. per ear for additional corn, or subtract if you wish to cook fewer ears.
