preparation

 

1. Combine the butter, lime juice, lime zest, sugar, salt, and cilantro in a medium bowl and mix well.

2. Grill the corn on a medium-hot grill for 10 minutes, turning occasionally.

3. Transfer the lime-cilantro butter to a serving bowl and serve with the corn.

Note: Before grilling the corn, soak the unshucked corn in water. The heat will dry the silk, which will come off when you peel off the husks. Use a paper towel to rub off any remaining corn silk.
