Grilled Corn with Chipotle Lime Butter

Grilled Corn with Chipotle Lime Butter

From the kitchen of Chef Tse
 
Serves 8
 
8 medium ears corn with husks
1 lime
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature
1/2 chipotle chile, chopped fine
1/2 teaspoon adobo sauce (from chipotle chile)
1 tablespoon cilantro, chopped
Salt and pepper
 
Using a knife or scissors, cut off the tassel from tip of corn. Remove all but innermost layer of husk around corn. Kernels should be covered but almost visible through the husk. Soak in cold water one hour.
 
Prepare grill for medium high heat. Zest lime and place in a small bowl. Cut lime into 8 wedges and set aside. To lime zest add butter, chile, adobo sauce and cilantro. Mix until well combined. Set aside.
 
Grill corn until husks begin to blacken, about 2 minutes. Using tongs, turn corn one quarter turn and grill another 2 minutes. Repeat on remaining two sides. Remove from grill and let cool on serving platter 3 to 5 minutes.
 
Remove husks and any remaining corn silk. Brush each ear lightly with 1/2 teaspoon chipotle butter. Reserve remaining butter for another use. Squeeze 1 lime wedge over each ear and sprinkle with salt and pepper if desired. Serve immediately.
