I love this recipe for corn on the cob—the perfect combo of chili powder and lime zest. The original recipe, from Guy Fieri, calls for leaving the husks on, but I usually just use foil–a lot easier, but I’ll give directions for leaving the husks on, too. Corn on the cob also has it’s health benefits: Corn is full of resistant starch (like fiber) and phenolic compounds, both of which help prevent colon cancer.
4 Tbs butter, at room temp (I microwaved for 30 secs and let it cool)
1 tsp lime zest
1 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp granulated garlic (I used garlic powder)
6 ears of corn
Soak ears of corn in water for 30-60 mins. Combine all ingredients (except corn) into a resealable zip bag. Drain and pat each cob with a paper towel. Place each ear of corn into the the bag, one at a time, and cover each cob thoroughly with marinade. Wrap with foil.
Place on a grill for indirect medium heat (350-450 degrees) for about 15-20 minutes. If leaving the husks on, peel back to soak and cover with marinade and then cover again with husks and grill.
