We had some friends over for a cookout the other night, and I wanted to try an herbed butter to go along with with our corn. This one from Martha Stewart was soooooo good. It's addictive!
4 ears corn
4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
2 tablespoons coarsely chopped cilantro
1/2 teaspoon grated zest of lime
1 1/2 teaspoons freshly squeezed lime juice
1/4 teaspoon chili powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
Cook corn as desired. (We boiled ours for about 6 minutes.)
Meanwhile, in a small bowl, stir together butter, cilantro, lime zest and juice, chili powder, salt, and a pinch of pepper until blended.
Serve corn with cilantro-lime butter.
