Steamed Corn With Basil Butter

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by breezermom

This herb-butter is delicious on steamed corn. The recipe calls for fresh corn on the cob, but I don't see why you couldn't use frozen! Prep time does not include the time to get the butter soft!

Delish! I'm a huge fan of fresh corn on the cob and this did not disappoint! I was surprised how much I enjoyed the orange zest in the butter - it really added a zing factor. Thanks for sharing this simple recipe Breezer! Made for Photo Tag.
