This fresh grilled corn on the cob is easy to make. Served with some homemade herb butter, this corn is so tasty!

Fresh corn on the cob in season is amazing! This recipe takes the basic boiled ears of corn many of us grew up with to a new level. You’ll find grilling the corn so easy and it adds an extra depth of flavor. Top it off with some herb butter and it makes this corn even more delicious.

What You’ll Need:

  • corn on the cob
  • avocado oil
  • sea salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • salted butter
  • lemon juice
  • fresh herbs (dill, basil, cilantro)

Making the Recipe:

Shuck the corn and remove the silks. Rub each ear of corn with some avocado oil. Avocado oil has a higher smoke point and is great to use when you’re cooking at higher temperatures.

Season each ear of corn with a little salt and pepper.

Next, you’ll want to fire up your grill to about 350-375 degrees. While the grill heats up, you can make the herb butter.

To make the butter, you will first melt the butter in the microwave. Mince up the fresh herbs you want to use and squeeze the lime juice. Mix all of the ingredients together in a small bowl and set it aside.

Once the grill is hot, put the corn directly on the grates. Grill for a few minutes on each each side, about 5-7 minutes in total.

Serve the grilled corn slathered with a little herb butter with your favorite main dish!
