Corn with Cilantro Butter

In the honor of our first week of sweet corn we have been trying different flavored butters. One of the yummy favorites has been Cilantro butter. We have some excellent baby cilantro that works with salsa as well.


12 ears of corn, husked (Petersens)
One stick of unsalted butter
4 tablespoons cilantro, finely chopped (no stems please) (Petersens)
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 teaspoon ground cumin (optional)
1/2 teaspoon chili powder (optional)
1/2 teaspoon sea salt or a good mineral salt (optional)


Blend butter, cilantro, and spices in a bowl or food processor. Spread the seasoned butter on hot corn, dust with chili powder and salt if desired, serve immediately.

Kick it Up:

Use extra butter on tuna steaks, chicken breast, or toasted french bread
