Grilled Sweet Corn with Herb Butter


4 ears of fresh sweet corn, husks removed

4 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened

2 tablespoons chopped fresh herbs (such as parsley, chives, or cilantro)

1 clove garlic, minced

Salt and black pepper to taste

Optional: freshly grated Parmesan cheese for serving


Preheat your grill to medium-high heat.

In a small bowl, mix together the softened butter, chopped fresh herbs, minced garlic, salt, and black pepper until well combined. This will be your herb butter.

Place the ears of sweet corn directly on the grill grates. Grill the corn, turning occasionally, until the kernels are tender and lightly charred, about 10-15 minutes.

While the corn is still hot, carefully spread each ear with a generous amount of the herb butter, allowing it to melt and coat the kernels.

Serve the grilled sweet corn immediately, optionally sprinkled with freshly grated Parmesan cheese for extra flavor.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              Enjoy the smoky sweetness of the grilled corn paired with the savory herb butter—a perfect summer side dish to accompany any outdoor meal or barbecue gathering!
