Grilled Corn with Chili Lime Butter

Grilled Corn with Chili Lime Butter


8 ears corn, unhusked
1/2 cup butter, softened
2 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon grated lime rind
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
2 tablespoon chopped cilantro
Salt to taste


Blend butter, lime juice, chili powder, lime rind, cumin, garlic powder, and cilantro and salt to taste. Pack it into a small crock or bowl; chill. Use on grilled corn.
Heat grill to medium hot. Peel off the excess husk (leaving the cob with 4 or 4 layers of husk still intact) and yank off the silk. Place the corn on the hottest part of the grill and turn 1/4 rotation every 2 to 3 minutes, as the husk starts to blacken, about 20 minutes. Peel away husk and serve with Cilantro Lime Butter.
Yields 8 servings
