  • ½ cup of butter or non-dairy alternative
  • ⅛ cup of granulated sugar
  • 1 lime - divided
  • ½ teaspoon of salt
  • 3 Tablespoons chopped Cilantro - divided
  1. Prepare grill for cooking on direct medium high heat. (350 to 450 degrees)
  2. Prepare the corn by pulling the husks back, while leaving the bottom attached. Remove the inner silk and discard.
  3. Gently pull a ½ inch piece of a husk to use to tie the husks underneath the base.
  4. Melt the butter over low heat.
  5. Add the sugar and stir until dissolved - about 2 minutes.
  6. Add the juice from ½ of the lime, salt and 2 Tb of cilantro. Stir just until combined.
  7. Gently brush the corn with the butter.
  8. Grill the corn on direct heat, with cover on, turning every few minutes. Grill about 10-15 minutes, or until tender and brown in spots.
  9. Brush with more of the butter mixture before serving. Serve with slices of the second half of the lime and extra cilantro if desired.
