Corn Cooked in Husks on the Grill With Chile-Lime Butter

Corn Cooked in Husks on the Grill With Chile-Lime Butter created by lazyme

Simple and delicious. This is a nice twist on grilled corn-on-the-cob because it includes a chilie-lime butter. The butter can be made up to 2 days ahead, covered and refrigerated. Just bring it back to room temperature before brushing on the corn. Enjoy!

ingredients

directions

  • Pull the husks back from the corn and remove the silks.
  • Pull the husks back into place around the corn.
  • Soak the ears in warm water for at least 30 minutes.
  • For the Chilie-Lime Butter:.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the butter, chilie powder, lime juice, salt and pepper.
  • Preheat the grill.
  • Remove the corn from the water and pat dry.
  • Gently peel the husks back from the corn and brush the corn with the butter.
  • Pull the husks back around the corn and tie with a piece of husk or kitchen string to keep the husks around the corn.
  • When the grill is hot, place the cobs on the rack and cook until the kernels are tender and lightly browned, about 20 minutes, turning occasionally.
  • The outer husks will burn, but the inner layers will protect the corn.
  • Remove the husks and serve immediately.
  • Pass additional chilie-lime butter.

    What a great way to cook corn on the grill! I followed the recipe as directed, with the extra seasoned butter on the table if anyone wanted it. I tried it without adding extra and it was just perfect for me! Made for Joy of Vegetables tag game.

    I love the simplicity of this dish and the delicious flavor of the chili and lime which are complementary to the corn. My grill was busy with chicken so i cooked it for a few minutes in the microwave, then after shucking rubbed it with a little butter and finished it off on the grill when the chicken was done.
