Chilli and Lime Buttered Corn


20 mins grill/40 mins bbq

Spice up your sweetcorn with this lip-smacking chilli and lime butter. Pile the corn high in the middle of the table and let everyone paint on their own butter. You can make a vegan version buy swapping the butter with oil, just heat up the oil slightly with the rest of the ingredients then drizzle onto the corn.

Here’s how you do it

  1. Fire up the bbq, or warm the grill.

  2. If you're bbqing then double wrap the corn in foil. Alternatively pop the corn in their husks under a hot grill for 3 minutes each turn (3 turns) until the husks start to blacken.

  3. Mix together the butter, lime juice, garlic, red chilli and salt & pepper.

  4. When the corn has cooked peel back the husks and paint over the flavoured butter using a pastry brush. Leave to cool for a few minutes before tucking in with your hands!
