Grilled Corn with Spicy Cilantro Lime Butter

IMG_0202

Grilled corn is a summer staple in our family. We often have chili lime butter to slather all over it. I decided to create my own take on our classic family recipe by using fresh cilantro and jalapeño. You can scale up the quantity without any issue. Just keep doubling/tripling for as much corn as you have. A whole jalapeño in this recipe makes it pretty spicy, but if you prefer things more mild just add half. Go light on the salt if your butter is already salted.

Directions:
1. Using a fork, mash the butter, jalapeño, lime juice, cilantro, salt, and pepper in a bowl until thoroughly combined. Let sit at least 30 minutes.
2. Meanwhile, grill the corn. Use whatever method you like. I like my corn very crisp with just enough cook time to get a grill flavor. This is about 7-10 minutes at most.
3. Slather in the butter and enjoy!
