Butter Lime Corn on the Cob

By July 3, 2013May 8th, 2023No Comments
Butter Lime Corn on the Cob is the perfect combination of citrus, sweet & savory all brushed on a lightly grilled cob of corn. If you have not tried grilled corn on the cob yet, this will be a must on your summer menu this week! There are few things better than sweet, grilled corn on the cob smothered in a specialty butter. We have become huge fans of the Nacho Libre Chili Corn on the Cob we posted about a month ago. We switched up the butter recipe and came up with this Lime Butter Corn on the Cob that is also out of this world good!!
