 Corn with Cilantro-Lime Butter
I created a lime butter especially for grilled corn and love to add fresh cilantro from my garden. — Andrea Reynolds, Rocky River, Ohio
12 ServingsPrep: 15 min. + chilling Grill: 15 min.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup minced fresh cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons grated lime peel
  • 12 medium ears sweet corn, husks removed
  • Grated cotija cheese, optional

Directions

  • In a small bowl, mix butter, cilantro, lime juice and lime peel.
  • Shape into a log; wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate 30 minutes or
  • until firm. Wrap each ear of corn with a piece of heavy-duty foil
  • (about 14 in. square).
  • Grill corn, covered, over medium heat 15-20 minutes or until tender,
  • turning occasionally. Meanwhile, cut lime butter into 12 slices.
  • Remove corn from grill. Carefully open foil, allowing steam to
  • escape. Serve corn with butter and, if desired, cheese. Yield: 12
  • servings.
