Ingredients

Chipotle Lime Butter:
  • 1/3 cup butter softened
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated lime zest
  • 2 teaspoons lime juice
  • 1 chipotle chili pepper in adobo sauce, finely diced
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
Grilled Corn:
  • 6 corn cobs husked

Method

Chipotle Lime Butter: Mash together butter, lime zest, lime juice, chipotle pepper and cilantro. On waxed paper or plastic wrap, form into 6-inch (15 cm) long log. Wrap and refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 1 month.)

Grilled Corn: Place corn on greased grill over medium-high heat; close lid and grill, turning occasionally, until grill-marked and tender, 10 to 15 minutes.

Cut butter log into 12 pieces; place on corn cobs to melt.

Tip from The Test Kitchen: We love the smoky flavour that comes from cooking corn directly on the grill. If you prefer a less-smoky taste, fold the husks back over the corn to cover it. Soak the cobs in a large bowl of water for 30 minutes before grilling as directed. Husk the corn before serving.
