Instructions Checklist
  • Peel back husks, leaving them attached at the base of the ear. Remove and discard silk; pull husks back over corn. Place a triple thickness of all-white paper towels in the microwave. Place ears, side by side, on towels. Microwave on high 8 to 9 minutes or until crisp-tender.

  • Meanwhile, in a small bowl, stir together butter, cilantro, lime zest and juice, chili powder, 1/8 teaspoon salt, and a pinch of pepper until blended.

  • Remove husks; serve with cilantro-lime butter.

Cook's Notes

Cilantro, lime, and chili powder are a classic Mexican combination. For a different taste, try substituting fresh basil for the cilantro, and lemon zest and juice for the lime when making the butter. Add 1 small garlic clove, finely chopped, and omit the chili powder.
