Grilled Corn with Chipotle Butter and Lime Salt

I just shared an amazing and simple recipe for Chipotle Butter with you, and now I'm here to tell you one of the many things to use that glorious butter on.

Grilled corn!

Oh how I love spring and summer and busting out the grill so I can indulge in some grilled corn on the cob. There's almost nothing better. And grilled corn tastes delicious with some regular melted butter of course, but why not amp that goodness up a bit? Ok, a lot!

Grilled corn on the cob + Chipotle Butter + Lime Salt.

Grilled Corn with Chipotle Butter and Lime Salt
ever-so-slightly adapted from Carlyklock
  • 2 ears corn on the cob, shucked
  • Chipotle Butter, melted (however much you want but the recipe yields 1 stick)
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  • zest of 1 lime
Add kosher salt and lime zest to a small bowl and stir to combine.  Set aside. 

Grill corn directly over medium-high heat, turning occasionally until browned and slightly charred on all sides. 

Melt chipotle butter and pour over grilled corn. Top with lime salt. (I had some lime salt leftover but let's be serious, that isn't a problem at all!)

I hope it's starting to feel like spring over in your neck of the woods.

Today it's 79 degrees and sunny here in Cincinnati and I'm loving every minute of it!

Peace, and bacon grease!

OK. So I found you at Shabby Creek Cottage. Decided this recipe was a keeper, checked out your blog's name, thought, "hmmm...this sounds like me". Looked around a bit, as one in apt to do when no one is looking, and was happy with what I found. But then. THEN! I came to the end. "Peace and bacon grease." I could NOT sign up to be a follower fast enough!! You ARE my kinda gal! I think this old Grani (yes, with an I. I'm not THAT old) is gonna learn some stuff from you. Thanks for starting my day off on a high note! Dona

I'm ready for this but our summer corn isn't here yet. The stuff in the stores is pale, low in quality and $5.99 for a five pack of corn!

Unknown said...

Your corn sounds insanely good. We use lime quite a bit on corn but I never thought to use chipotle too. I can just imagine how good it is. Thanks for sharing on Thursdays Treasures

I have a freezer full of corn from last years farm pick up! I know there will be a lot of corn on my menu and all of it will have the Chipotle Butter and lime salt on it! Great combination of flavors!

Thanks for linking this to the In and Out of the Kitchen Party. I can't wait to see what you bring next week.
