Fresh cilantro and lime juice on corn?! YES. Oh the lime…it seriously takes this corn to the next level. This grilled corn is tender, and so flavourful.

Grilled is the way to go.

Grilling corn on the barbecue is the best. And so easy. The butter and herbs soak into the corn as it roasts, and makes the corn so flavourful and sweet. But I pretty much love any vegetables that are roasted because the flavour seems to be so much better. Like roasted cauliflower? The best. Or roasted beets or asparagus or potatoes? Yum. Hungry yet?

Grilled Corn on the Cob Recipe Tips


  • CORN: Use fresh sweet corn. Remove the corn husks and silk.
  • WRAPPING IN FOIL: After adding butter, lime juice and cilantro, make sure to wrap the individual cobs of corn tightly in foil. Then place on the barbecue, seam up, so the butter stays in the foil.
