Grilled Corn on the Cob with Cilantro Butter & Lime

Just in time for the weekend I thought it would good to post a corn on the cob recipe because weekends are for BBQing right?!  Now I know corn on the cob is not complicated by any means, but sometimes it’s not complicated enough?  I mean until I put fresh cilantro and lime juice on my corn, I had no idea what I was missing.  My husband was skeptical of the lime juice but quickly changed his mind after eating these.  Oh the lime…it seriously takes this corn to the next level.  Major deliciousness!

Grilled Corn on the Cob with Cilantro Butter & Lime

And grilling corn on the BBQ?  The best.  And so easy.  The butter and herbs soak into the corn as it roasts, and makes the corn so flavourful and sweet.  But I pretty much love any vegetables that are roasted because the flavour seems to be so much better.  Like roasted cauliflower?  The best.  Or roasted beets or asparagus or potatoes?  Yum.  Hungry yet?

This corn is SO good.  You need to try it with the lime juice…you do.



Grilled Corn on the Cob with Cilantro Butter & Lime



  • 6 cobs of corn (husks & silk removed)
  • 3 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro
  • pinch of brown sugar
  • salt & fresh ground pepper
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • juice from 1 fresh lime
  • extra cilantro for garnish


  1. Preheat your BBQ to medium heat.
  2. In a bowl combine the melted butter with the cilantro, brown sugar, and salt & pepper.
  3. Place each cob of corn in it’s own sheet of tin foil.
  4. Brush each cob of corn generously with the cilantro/butter mix.
  5. To the corn cobs, add the juice from the lime, evenly distributing it between the 6 cobs.
  6. Wrap each cob tightly in the tin foil.
  7. Place the corn cobs onto the grill and cook for about 20 minutes, making sure to turn the cobs often or they will burn.
  8. When they are done, you can sprinkle a little fresh cilantro on the cobs and serve!

    Ahh good to see that this Orange is the New black ad has hijacked your site too. Well not good per se, but I’m glad it is clearly a sheblogs issue and not an issue with my site. Anyways I hope it gets fixed soon! And more related to this post, I love grilled corn on the cob, it is so nutty and delicious!
