Step by Step Method
Preheat a grill or preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).
In a small bowl, mix together the melted butter, ground cumin, ground coriander, paprika, salt, and black pepper to create a spice mixture.
Brush the ears of corn with the spiced butter mixture, ensuring they are evenly coated on all sides.
Place the corn on the preheated grill or on a baking sheet if using the oven.
If grilling, cook the corn for about 10-12 minutes, turning occasionally until the kernels are tender and slightly charred.
If baking in the oven, cook the corn for about 15-20 minutes, turning halfway through, until the kernels are tender and slightly golden.
Once cooked, remove the corn from the grill or oven and let it cool slightly.
Serve with fresh lemon wedges on the side.
Garnish with chopped cilantro or parsley, if desired.
