I love how this corn gives you a combination of sweet, spicy, smoky and salty all in one bite!

Technique tip: Wait to remove husks until just before cooking to keep the corn moist and fresh.

Swap option: Use your favorite spices to personalize the butter. Cinnamon, chipotle, black pepper are all fun options!

Ingredients

    • 8 ears corn, husks and silks removed
    • 8 ounces (1 stick) salted butter, room temperature
    • 1 teaspoon chili powder
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground cayenne
    • 2 tablespoons honey
    • Flaky sea salt, for serving

Preparation

1. Preheat grill to 375°F.

2. Place ears of corn directly on heat. Let char 2-3 minutes per side, about ten minutes total.

3. While corn cooks, whisk together the butter, chili powder, cayenne and honey in a bowl until smooth and evenly combined.

4. Brush the hot corn with the chili honey butter and season with sea salt. Serve with extra butter and salt on the side.
