Corn on the Cob with Lime Chili Butter

Mmmmm who doesn't love corn on the cob?!? I love corn!! Yes, I know you're thinking really?? A recipe for corn on the cob?? Well really it's about the BUTTER that soaks into the corn! I mixed up a lime chili butter to slather on it. It's a softened stick of butter, whipped up with lime zest, lime juice, chilli powder, salt and pepper. It's even better than you can imagine right now! The bits of lime zest combine so well with the sweet corn. It's salty, sweet, tangy, fresh, and simply delicious..

  • 6 ears corn on the cob
  • 1 stick butter, softened
  • Juice and zest of one lime
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Boil corn on the cob for 10 minutes, or until tender. (It's also really good grilled!)
Combine butter, lime zest, lime juice, chili powder, salt and pepper in an small bowl. Use a pastry brush to brush on hot corn. Serve immediately..
