Grilling and topping with lime-flavored butter elevates common corn on the cob recipe. You can make the lime butter up to two days ahead and refrigerate. Melt butter before brushing over grilled corn.

How to Make It

Step 1

Prepare grill or broiler.

Step 2

Combine butter, rind, juice, salt, and pepper in a small bowl.

Step 3

Place corn on grill rack or broiler pan coated with cooking spray. Cook 10 minutes, turning frequently. Remove from heat; brush corn with butter mixture.

YES! This is SO good. There is no way I'm going back to plain old butter on corn after this. It's very, very simple and so incredibly good, especially if you grill the corn.

My four family members just loved this and it was so easy to make, since we were grilling anyway. Grilled corn has a different flavor compared to just cooking in the microwave. We will make this again! (Husband, me, 19yo daughter and 17yo daughter!)

Very good. Even better if made a few hours before, so that the red pepper can infuse the rest of the mix.

Just a few simple ingredients and this corn is outstanding. Adding lime juice allows you to reduce the amount of butter you use on the corn...perfect. This is going to become our standby grilled corn recipe.

Very good, but I'd recommend upping the butter amount to 2 TBSP.

Really yummy and so simple. Didn't grill the corn, just boiled it like we usually do then brushed on the butter. Didn't think this recipe works on eight full ears, though. We found it barely sufficient to cover four.

Delicious. Took longer than 10 minutes- 18 on gas grill on low.

A big hit, although some of the kids questioned the lime flavoring!
