When it comes to corn on the cob, I’m usually a purist. No butter, no salt, no pepper. And no cheese. Just plain corn. Unaltered and simple.
Yeah, I’m a weirdo sometimes.
I guess this taste preference for unfussy corn is something I inherited. Because my Uncle likes to eat it raw, picked right off the stalks on our family farm. At least I cook mine…
But this cilantro-lime corn is the exception to my rule about naked corn. The combination of cilantro and lime really brightens the flavors of the corn, but doesn’t take away from any of the natural deliciousness. And it is so simple to do. For hardly any extra work (and essentially no extra calories or fat), you can transform plain corn into something with a little zip to it. Try it out at your next barbecue!
