  • 1/4 cup (2 ounces) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 2 tablespoon finely chopped fresh chives
  • 1/2 teaspoon finely grated lime zest
  • 1/8 teaspoon paprika
  • Pinch of cayenne pepper
  • 4 ears fresh corn on the cob

Serves 4

  1. In a medium bowl combine the butter, chives, lime zest, sweet paprika, cayenne and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Keep the lime chive butter at room temperature if serving right away, or refrigerate for several days.
  2. Fill a pot large enough to hold all of the corn 2/3 full with water, and bring the water to a boil. Remove the husks and silks from the corn, and then add the corn to the boiling water. Cook for 4 minutes (turning occasionally to ensure even cooking).
  3. Drain and serve immediately with a dollop of lime chive butter on the top.

I tried this today (Pan Frying Fish) and it was great. The fish was Spanish Mackerel. Thanks for the video. Your presentation was very well done.
