  1. Cream butter in a bowl until smooth; mix in cilantro, lime juice, and cayenne pepper until thoroughly combined. Cover and refrigerate 1 hour to blend flavors.
  2. Peel husks back from ears of corn starting at the top, leaving the husks attached at the bottom of the ears. Remove all the corn silk and close husks over the ears again. Cover corn ears with cold water in a large bowl until husks are thoroughly soaked, about 20 minutes.
  3. Preheat grill for medium heat and lightly oil the grate.
  4. Place the corn in husks onto the hot grate and grill covered until husks are charred and the corn kernels are tender, 20 to 25 minutes, turning often. Strip off husks and serve corn with cilantro lime butter.

I followed this recipe exactly and thought it was very bland really didn't taste the lime at all IF I make it again I would at least triple the lime maybe also use so zest to ramp it up

No changes needed, I've heard but never did the sweet, hot combination, it was delish! Didn't realize but I did use zest thought it was in this recipe, do add!!

My family loved this!! I will be doing this all summer!
