GARLIC HERB BUTTER ROASTED CORN
A grill pan is used to roast corn with garlic herb butter. It just takes 15 minutes to cook the corn, and it’s delicious!
My son’s school is on Spring Break this week. To me, what does it mean?
This implies that, from Monday through Friday, I’ll have to prepare food for 15 meals: breakfast, lunch, and dinner, not to mention afternoon snacks.
Even though my kid enjoys dining at his favorite restaurants, he still prefers having his mom cook for him.
The first thing he would say if I asked him is, “I want to eat your food, it’s yummy!”
If he likes the food and finishes everything on his plate, I don’t mind making it for him.
One of the dishes I made for him as an afternoon snack was this garlic-herb butter corn. When he was a kid, I would always boil some corn, and he would be delighted. As for me, I decided to go all out.
The corn was softly “roasted” on a cast iron grill pan with garlic, butter, herbs, honey, and corn. You can also cook the corn in the oven, but I cheated by using a gas stovetop instead.
It just takes 15 minutes to create, and the finished product looks and tastes like it just came from the grill.
Before serving, I poured some paprika over the corn, and it was out of this world!
I’ve frozen the garlic-herb butter so that I can use it in a variety of recipes.
Slather and brush heavily on the corn with 3 teaspoons of it.
My new favorite food is garlic herb butter. I used it on bread, potatoes, zucchini/squash, mushrooms, and cheese bombs.
There is no doubt that this butter roasted corn recipe is going to become a staple in my kitchen.
There are just 178 calories in one serving of this meal.
- 3 tablespoons of melted salted butter
- 3 ears of corn
- 1 tablespoon of chopped parsley leaves
- 1 clove of minced garlic
- 1 tablespoon of honey
- Gather the ingredients for the garlic-herb butter: honey, butter, parsley, and garlic. Mix thoroughly.
- Bring water to a boil in a saucepan. Cook the corn for 5 minutes at the most, then drain.
- Using a cast-iron grill pan on high heat, “roast” each corn cob for about 5 minutes until the kernels are slightly browned on the outside. Also, you can roast it in the oven for 10-15 minutes at 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
- If desired, top the corn with paprika and serve right away.
It’s also possible to combine garlic and herbs in garlic-herb butter. Compound butter can be used in place of the honey if you prefer.
