Corn in Cilantro Lime Butter (Equivalent)



  • 3 ears of corn, shucked
  • 1/2 lime
  • 1/4 cup diced cilantro
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 cup butter (or the equivalent of your choice so it can be dairy free/vegan; I used light butter) at room temperature

What to do:

  • Preheat the oven to 400F
  • Mix the cilantro, lime, salt, and cayenne with the butter
  • Spread it on the corn (I just smeared it on top because I figured it would melt and cover the rest in the oven)
  • Wrap each in aluminum foil and bake for about 25 minutes (I think you could lay them out on a 9×13 glass baking dish and cover that with foil to cut down on the waste, but I didn’t try it)

There’s leftover melted yummy butter.  We’ll probably dip tortillas in it and crisp them on my cast iron skillet.  Yum!
