Jalapeño-Lime Corn on the Cob

Jalapeño-Lime Corn on the Cob


  • 1 stick butter

  • 1 lime, juiced and zested

  • 1 small jalapeño pepper, seeded

  • 1 clove garlic

  • 1 teaspoon sweet paprika

  • 6 ears corn on the cob, husked

  • 1 slice bread, any kind

  • Coarse salt


Combine butter, lime, jalapeño, garlic and paprika in food processor and pulse process until smooth. Place on waxed paper or plastic and roll to form a log. Place in freezer until ready to serve.

Cook corn by boiling, steaming or grilling. Cut disks of butter and rub onto corn, nesting the butter in a slice of bread to apply it to the hot corn. Season ears with salt, then fight over who gets to eat the hot buttered bread slice!
