Grilled Corn with lime and cilantroFresh, sweet corn is hands down one of the greatest things about summer in the South. During the summer months, I could eat it almost every day. Grilling corn makes it extra flavorful, giving it a nice char and a little smokiness. Add jalapenos, lime zest, and cilantro to  some butter to turn ordinary corn into a finger-licking good southwestern-style treat.

No need to worry about undercooking fresh corn. Raw corn is perfectly fine to eat and it tastes delicious without being cooked. I really don’t understand people who put wonderfully fresh, crisp, and vibrant corn in a pot of boiling water for 10 minutes and turn it into a water-logged, flavorless cob of mush.

You just want to grill corn long enough to warm it and give it a little char.

  • salt and pepper
  • 6 tablespoons butter, softened
  • ½ a jalapeno, seeded and minced

  1. Heat grill to medium-high. Lightly spray corn with cooking spray and season to taste with salt and pepper.

  3. In a small bowl, mix together butter, jalapeno, lime zest, and garlic salt.
