Step 1

Plunge the cobs of corn (whole silks and all) into water and then place them on a open barbecue and cook them on all sides over medium heat until the sheaths are quite darkened (estimated time 20 to 30 minutes).

Step 2

Meanwhile combine the other ingredients into a soft mix.

Step 3

Once cooked peel back the husks and the silks and place a good blob of the butter mix on each cob of corn and serve and enjoy (maybe present some extra butter on the side) or present corn as is and let everyone do their own serving portions of the butter on the side.

Daily Inspiration

We thoroughly enjoyed this flavored butter on our corn. The lime zest really adds such a great flavor and the bite of the pepper (used a green jalapeno)was subtle, but delicious. Fresh corn is so abundant here during the summer months so we will be enjoying this again soon. : )

What a great twist on grilled corn. I served this with steak, but with the lime it would be fabulous with fish. Made for Pick Me game. Thanks for sharing!

Oh My! This is unbelievably delicious! I LOVE the limey flavors that both the zest and juice impart. I didn't have red chilies so I used half of a jalapeno with seeds and ribs removed (to please my daughter. She doesn't like hot so much). Through my rush from coming in from work, I didn't realize that I was supposed to leave the silks and all to then be transferred to the bbq. I removed all covering and plunged it in water with some salt and sugar (like I normally do). I realized my error when it was too late. But no fear, when smothered with the butter....oh my word, it was GOOD! Thank you Pat for sharing. This is a FAVORITE!

I have made this 3 times now and we love it! I buttered one cob and cut the kernels off to add to a soup. The smoky flavour was awesome. DH is fussy about his corn, but he loved the flavour of the butter with it. Thanks for sharing Pat! Made for the Pick Me! tag game.
