  1. Peel back the husks of each ear of corn, leaving them attached at the bottom. Remove the corn silk strings around the kernels. Return the husks back around the corn. Soak corn in a bowl of lukewarm water for 1 hour.
  2. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate.
  3. Mix salt and lime zest together in a bowl.
