Oven Roasted Corn with Basil Lime Butter

My favorite produce in the summer is fresh corn on the cob. Not only it is delicious, but it’s cheap too. I either cook it on the grill wrapped in foil with indirect heat, or roast it in the oven. I prefer the lower more controllable heat of the oven for cooking my corn. I’ve also found it works best for me to roast it unwrapped. I drizzle it with olive oil and sprinkle with a little salt and pepper. To serve, we usually just slather in plain butter or drizzle with more olive oil. But today I wanted to change it up by making a unique butter to slather all over our corn.

For this butter, I simply combined fresh basil leaves and the juice of a lime. It’s a fresh fun flavor that compliments the corn perfectly.
