Grilled Corn with Herb and Garlic Butter

Grilled Corn with Herb and Garlic Butter

I had sweet corn on the cob to use up and wanted to make it a little fancier 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 preferred it with plain butter too. I guess this will be something I make for myself–their loss!

How to Make Grilled Corn with Herb and Garlic Butter

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.

  1. Love it – all the herbs and garlic sound great with corn! Boys are so silly sometimes….I know mine doesn’t like to stray from the familiar sometimes so I can see him just wanting his corn with butter, too:-).

  2. I’d be with you on this one Pam! I love herb butter on grilled corn. Try adding a little parmesan in there next time too… it gives it an additionally nice flavor!

  3. This looks delicious, Pam! I love compound butters on corn. They are delicious melted over a hot off the grill steak, too!

  4. We’ve been grilling corn more this summer, but I never remember to use an herb butter. This looks like the way to go especially with the garlic in it.

  5. when I visit my friend in the western part of Mass., I stock up on sweet corn.
    We don’t get corn like that here on the cape, it such a treat.
    And of course I have yet to grill it.

  6. That does sound delicious. Our favorite way to eat corn lately is buttered and sprinkled with ancho chile pepper. You get the sweetness of the corn and butter with a little heat added in.

  7. my mom’s garden yielded about 20 ears of corn and that was it–we were all disappointed. fortunately, the store still has some to sell, and this is precisely how i like them prepared.
