Grilled Corn with Chipotle Butter and Parmesean Cheese

Even the freshest corn can dry out when it is grilled, so I parboil my corn and then grill it—for the flavor—for just a few minutes. The chipotle chile powder adds a smoky touch here. This is where those cute little plastic corn holders come in handy! This recipe is easily doubled.

Ingredients

  • 4 ears fresh sweet corn, shucked
  • 4 tablespoons (½ stick) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon chipotle chile powder
  • Vegetable oil, for the grill
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • ½ cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese

Instructions

  1. Preheat a barbecue grill to high heat.

  2. While the grill is heating, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the ears of corn and cook for 2 minutes. Remove the corn and dry with a towel. Set aside.

  3. Stir the butter and the chile powder together in a small bowl, and set it aside.

  4. Oil the grill grate well, and spread the olive oil over the ears of corn. Arrange the corn on the grate and grill, turning the ears, until they have nice grill marks, about 3 minutes.

  5. Transfer the ears of corn to a plate, and brush the chipotle butter over them. Sprinkle on the Parmesan cheese, and serve immediately.

When we've grilled corn, we'll often leave the corn in the husks during the grilling, doing it over a lower heat. I like this recipe for the chipolte butter and cheese and I'm looking forward to giving this a try next spring when grilling season starts up again. During the winter, I'll definitely give this a try with regular cooked ears of corn without the addition of the grilling. Actually, I think the butter and cheese would be wonderful added to a package of frozen corn.
