Nothing brings out the flavor of corn on the cob like grilling it. Build even more heat with a simpled seasoned butter made from salt, black pepper, paprika, and cayenne pepper.


  • 8 ears corn

  • ½ cup melted butter

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ½ teaspoon black pepper (or combination of ½ teaspoon paprika and ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper)


  1. Heat grill to medium. Remove outer layers of husks from 8 ears corn. Grill corn, turning often, until kernels burst easily when pressed, 15 to 20 minutes (husks will be quite charred).

  2. Meanwhile, make Seasoned Butter: In a small bowl, mix together 1/2 cup melted butter and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Add 1/2 teaspoon black pepper, or a combination of 1/2 teaspoon paprika and 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper.

  3. Peel back husks and silks from corn, brush with seasoned butter, and serve.
