Grilled Corn with Cilantro-Mint Butter

It's just not summer without corn on the cob!  My mom hails from the midwest and has been dubbed the "corn snob" of our family.  She's passed that trait on to my boys who love when they see corn on their dinner plates.  My five year-old recently ate two ears of corn and then complained when I wouldn't give him a third!  Grilling the corn gives it a gorgeous color and a lovely flavor that is really complimented by this fresh summery herbed butter!  I just know you're going to love it!

6 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
1 tablespoon chopped fresh mint
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
zest of 1/2 a lime
4 ears fresh sweet corn, shucked

For the butter, combine butter, herbs, salt and pepper, and zest in a mini food processor and give them a whirl until combined.

Preheat a grill to medium-high and brush grates with oil.  Grill corn, turning often, until slightly charred, about 10 minutes.

Spread 1/4 of the butter on each of the ears of corn and serve hot!

Serves 4.
