Roasted Corn with Smoky Lime Butter

I wanted to do a little something different taste-wise this time around and change up my cooking method as well. I usually soak the corn in milk for 30 minutes or so before boiling it but that just seems so boring sometimes. I love it on the grill but starting up the grill for just one thing is sometimes a pain and other times the grill is too crowded with fish and chicken and veggies.

Enter the oven method! Have you ever tried this before? This was my first time and it sure won’t be my last.

I cleaned it up a little by cutting the end off and removing a few loose strips. I just wanted to ensure that the silken ends didn’t flame up. Put them directly on the rack at 350 F for 30 minutes and they’re done. Super simple, super delicious.

Corn roasting method

The great thing about this method is that you can peel back the husks so easily and the silk goes with it – no mess! Do be careful about the steam though – they’ll be very hot.
