grilled corn with lime and chili butter

How to make grilled corn with lime and chili butter recipe - This butter is an easy way to flavor grilled vegetables, meat, or fish. It freezes well for up to 6 months.


PREP TIME 10 mins, COOK TIME 10 mins, plus freezing

7 tbsp unsalted butter, softened
finely grated zest of 1 lime
1⁄2 tsp chili powder or cayenne pepper
1⁄2 tsp salt
freshly ground black pepper
4 corn cobs
a little olive oil

1 Prepare a grill for cooking. In a small bowl, mash the butter with the lime zest, chili powder, and salt and pepper.

2 Cut a piece of parchment paper, about 6in (15cm) square. Put the butter in the middle of one edge of the paper and shape it like a sausage. Roll the butter sausage up in the paper, then twist the ends so the butter forms a tight shape. Leave in the freezer for at least 30 minutes before use (or freeze until needed).

3 Cook the corn cobs in a large pan of boiling water for up to 5 minutes until the corn is tender (this will depend on the size and age of the cobs). Drain well, rub them in a little oil, and grill for 6 minutes over hot coals or flame, turning them frequently, until they are lightly charred on all sides.

4 Serve the corn with a 1⁄2in- (1cm-) thick disk of the chilled butter on top to melt.
