Hi there! This post is coming to you as I’m on my way to NYC, heading for a much needed vacation where we do not do any work on the house, drink mojitos, and relax! Relax is a new word in our vocabulary this summer.
Speaking of mojitos, this corn would certainly go with one! I am loving the fresh corn at the farmers markets right now, and am loving even more the fact that I can fully cook the corn on the grill, and don’t need to pre-boil! Hopefully you have already been made aware of this, but if not; get excited because cooking summer corn just got even easier with less dishes!
All you’ve got to do is husk your corn, slather this yummy chili-lime butter on them, wrap ’em up in tinfoil and pop on the grill for 20 minutes.. done! No dishes, no mess, nice grill marks, and tasty charred flavor.
Corn is one of the few places that I actually use real butter when I’m cooking. If you’ve been following me for a while you know I’m an olive oil fan and use it as my fat source whenever possible. However, on warm corn I love the taste of butter, and I don’t feel guilty because butter in moderation is A-OK. :)
