      Fantastic flavors together! My fresh corn was so nice and sweet; the lime and cilantro really did balance it perfectly. Thanx for posting. I'll enjoy this many times this summer while the corn is fresh and sweet!

      Great corn! The lime juice was a good flavor to accompany a Mexican salmon dish. Thanks Cookin'Diva.

      Very good and fresh tasting! This was so simple and went very well with a southwest marinated and grilled chicken breast - made for some good eating! I didn't use this method to cook my corn but wrapped each ear in plastic wrap and nuked them approximately the same amount of time. This is how I usually cook corn on the cob. Worked just fine but nice to know an even easier way! I really appreciate a new way to use the rest of a bunch of cilantro that just seems to go to waste in the crisper. Delicious recipe.
