Cilantro-Lovers' Corn

Notes

This cilantro-heavy corn is inspired by a recipe that fellow POPSUGAR Food editor Sara Yoo created for chili-lime corn. For extra fun, put the compound butter mixture in a heatsafe container such as a mini-cast iron pot, then throw it directly on the grill to melt. Then you can brush it directly onto the corn while you're grilling.

Cilantro-Lovers' Corn

Ingredients

3 tablespoons salted butter, at room temperature
1/3 cup plus 3 tablespoons cilantro, finely chopped and divided
1 tablespoon lime zest
Juice of 1/2 lime
6 ears yellow or white corn, husks and silk removed

Directions

  1. Preheat a grill on medium-high. In a small bowl, combine butter, 1/3 cup cilantro, lime zest, and lime juice, mixing until well combined. Using a basting brush, apply the mixture evenly across all ears of corn.
  2. Place corn on the grill and turn heat down to medium, rotating until all sides are evenly charred (about 2-3 minutes per side).
  3. Arrange corn on a platter, then garnish with remaining cilantro.
