    Grilled Corn on the Cob with Cilantro Lime Butter & Feta Cheese

    INGREDIENTS
    4 ears of corn, un-husked
    1 lime, half for the zest & juice, and the rest to garnish
    1 Tbs. cilantro, finely chopped
    2 Tbs. butter, softened at room temperature
    feta cheese

    DIRECTIONS
    1. Heat your grill to medium high or high heat. Place un-husked corn on the grill, and rotate occasionally until all sides have been charred (takes about 15-30 minutes, depending on your grill). Remove from heat, and let cool for 5-10 minutes.

    2. While corn is cooling, mix together the Cilantro Lime Butter…. mix 2 Tbs. softened butter, 1 Tbs. finely chopped cilantro, the juice and zest of half a lime, salt & pepper to taste (optional).

    3. Husk the corn and brush on the butter mixture. Sprinkle with generous amounts of feta cheese, and serve with lime wedges. Enjoy!

      I often make a simpler version: husk the corn, drizzle with oil (1-2 tsp/ear), sprinkle with salt and pepper, wrap individually in foil, and grill! I also make another version that requires brushing the corn with cumin, parsley, a little butter, salt and pepper. Both are delicious!
