Chili Lime Corn on the Cob

This is a wonderful summer dish that I plan on making often. I love the taste of grilled corn on the cob over boiling it, plus the flavors of the butter mixture are amazing! Guy Fieri made this on The View last week and it's from his new cookbook, Guy Fieri's Food. I'm quite tempted to buy this cookbook!

  • 4 ears of corn, in husk
  • 3 Tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon lime zest
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • ¼ teaspoon granulated garlic
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper, freshly cracked
In a small bowl, combine butter, zest, chili powder, salt and pepper and set aside.
1. Carefully peel back husk from ear, without detaching from the bottom, remove silk from corn, fold the husk back around the ears and soak in water for 30 - 45 minutes. Make sure to weigh down the ears so that they are fully submerged.
2. Preheat a BBQ to medium, indirect heat. Remove ears from water, drain, open husk, dry ear with paper towel and spread butter mixture evenly on corn. Fold husk back over corn and grill for 15-20 minutes. Serve immediately.
