Garlic-Lime Grilled Corn

Have you had corn-on-the-cob yet this summer?  What is it about gripping a cob and biting down into the crunchy sweet corn while melted butter dribbles down your face, seeps through your fingers and drips down your arms that just screams summer?  Oh, it’s just so good.  I can’t have a real grill where I live so I have to settle with an indoor grill but it doesn’t matter: grilled corn is just so perfect on a warm day no matter which way it’s grilled.  This Garlic-Lime Grilled Corn is simple and tasty with only a few ingredients.

Fresh sweet corn is grilled until brown and tender before being brushed with a mixture of olive oil, butter and garlic.  A light dusting of lime zest adds yet another fresh twist to these cobs.  There are tons of ways to make your corn-on-the-cob but if you want something that isn’t too out of the ordinary and still celebrates corn’s summery sweetness, you’ll like this.  The lime doesn’t overpower the corn but enhances it.  A sprinkle of salt on top is just icing on the cob.
