Summer corn is now in season! Jersey Corn can be so sweet, that is amazing simply boiled, and topped with salt pepper and butter! For a Mexican twist, we added some savory spices, along with a touch of brown sugar to melted butter for a delicious sweet and savory summertime corn!
4 ears fresh corn (if you are making more than 4 ears just double the ingredients)
4 Tbsp. unsalted butter
1/2 tsp. paprika
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper or chili powder
1/2 tsp. ground cumin
1/2 tsp. brown sugar
1 clove garlic, minced
Salt & Pepper
1 lime juiced and additional slices for garnish
Chopped cilantro or parsley (optional)
Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add fresh corn and simmer for 5 minutes.
In a small sauce pan, add butter, spices and minced garlic and simmer over low heat to cook garlic slightly, about 2-3 minutes. Add lime juice.
Cut each corn in half. Brush with butter mixture. Grill until lightly charred, 3-4 minutes.
Drizzle with remaining melted butter. Add corn cob skewers and serve hot.
