Ummm, we had our first corn of the season tonight. I grilled it in the husk on the gas grill. Just before serving, I removed the husks and silk, and reheated the corn on the grill, brushing with chile-lime butter. Fabulous. I cooked extra corn, then cut it off the cob for chicken and corn tacos tomorrow.

Chili-Lime Butter

1/2 stick of unsalted butter
1/2 t sea or kosher salt
juice of 1/2 lime
1/4 t cayenne pepper, ground

Melt the butter, stir in the seasonings and lime, and brush over the corn. The butter would make a good basting sauce for grilled meat.

Let me know what you think. Even Dan liked it, and he's still in spicy food training.

Well, I didn't have a lime, but I had butter and habanero (I'm sure I didn't spell that right) lime salsa from Trader Joe's. So I thought, What the heck, I'll smear some on an ear. Four ears later, I put it on microwaved new potatoes, too.
