A barbecue wouldn’t be complete without some buttered corn on the cob. We’re big fans of this zesty steamed corn on the cob recipe with lime and chilli butter.

Ingredients

  • 6 corn cobs
  • 150g salted butter, softened
  • Zest of 2 limes
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • A few pinches chilli flakes (we like aleppo chilli flakes, available from specialist food shops)

Method

  1. Put the corn cobs in a steamer and steam for 10-15 minutes until bright yellow and tender.
  2. Meanwhile, mix the butter with the lime zest and lemon juice, and a good few pinches of chilli flakes. Once the corn is tender, transfer to a serving dish and spread with the butter. Serve immediately with any leftover butter.
