Grilled Corn with Herb Butter

INGREDIENTS

 

1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature

2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh tender herbs (such as cilantro, chives, and/or flat-leaf parsley)

1 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Cayenne pepper

8 ears corn, shucked

1 tablespoon vegetable oil

 

PREPARATION

Prepare grill for medium-high heat. Mix butter, herbs, salt, pepper, and a pinch of cayenne pepper in a small bowl. Set herb butter aside.

Brush corn with oil and grill, turning often, until it is tender and charred in spots, 5-8 minutes.

Transfer corn to a large platter or bowl and spread with reserved herb butter, dividing evenly.

DO AHEAD: Herb butter can be made 1 day ahead. Cover and chill. Bring to room temperature before spreading over grilled ears of corn.
