Weekend Extra...Butter!

Trust me on this... get the ingredients you need to make this fantastic cilantro-lime butter and smear it on freshly roasted corn on the cob. A big thank you to applecrisp on the CLBB for sharing. Yum! We roasted our corn on the grill, and I left the cayenne out of the butter. It was so good, Andy and I were practically fighting over the last ear of corn.

Roasted Corn on the Cob with Cilantro Lime Butter

6 ears corn, shucked
Cilantro Lime Butter, recipe follows

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Coat each ear of corn in 2 tablespoons of the cilantro lime butter and wrap individually in foil. Roast until hot and steaming, about 25 minutes. Serve with extra butter on the side.

Cilantro Lime Butter:
2 sticks unsalted butter, at room temperature
1/4 cup chopped cilantro leaves
1 lime, zested and juiced
2 teaspoons salt
3/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Put the butter in a mixing bowl and, using a rubber spatula, mix in the cilantro, lime zest, lime juice, salt and cayenne. Use immediately or refrigerate.
Yield: 3/4 cup
