Grilled Corn with Herb and Garlic Butter

I had sweet corn on the cob to use up and wanted to make it a little more fancy than just smothered in plain butter. I combined some fresh basil and parsley together with a touch of dried oregano and minced garlic. I loved the fresh flavors the herbs gave this corn and thought it was delicious. My son opted for plain butter and my husband said it was good but he prefered it with plain butter too. I guess, this will be something I make for myself – their loss!

Combine the softened butter with the fresh basil, parsley, dried oregano, and garlic together in a bowl. Mix until well combined; set aside.

Preheat grill to 375 degrees. Remove the husks and silk from corn. Place the corn on the hot grill and cook until lightly charred on all sides, about 10-12 minutes. You can also cook this corn in your grill pan over medium high heat for about 12-14 minutes, making sure to turn to evenly cook all sides.

Slather the butter over the corn then season with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste. Serve immediately. Enjoy.
