Corn with Cilantro-Lime Butter Recipe

Yield: 12 Servings

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:

  1. 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).
  2. 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.
