Grilled Corn With Chili-Lime Butter

You know it's summer when the farmers market has fresh corn. It's so simple to grill and really needs no embellishment but salt. However, if you're feeling fancy, you can whip up this flavored butter. Enjoy!

Grilled Corn With Chili-Lime Butter
Corn on the cob
Squares of aluminum foil for wrapping corn
Olive oil
Kosher salt
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 tsp. chili powder
Zest and juice from 1 lime

1. Place 1 ear of corn on a piece of aluminum foil. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Wrap corn with foil. Repeat with remaining ears of corn and aluminum foil squares.
2. Grill at medium heat for about 10 minutes. (Andy says he can tell it's done when he hears the oil begin to pop inside the foil wrapper.)
3. Meanwhile, combine butter and next 2 ingredients. Spoon onto a sheet of wax paper, and roll up to create a log shape. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
4. Serve hot corn with butter mixture.
