Corn is one of my favorite sides ever! I always love to cook corn on the BBQ – I thought it would be fun to do a corn on the cob recipe because before you know it – it will be corn season ( around June and July)

My local Farmer’s Market had its last winter farmer’s market so I went with my family and snagged some cilantro – I usually grow it myself ( I need to get on that this year) – cilantro is the perfect herb to grow in the kitchen – super hard to kill and it grows super fast 🙂

This corn is sweet, a little spicy, and a bit sour from the lime – it really is a fun combination.

If you are not planning to BBQ – just cook the corn in the oven at 400 for 20 minutes

This recipe is extremely easy – you will be melting the butter and make a marinade – top with cheese and cilantro and that is about it

This recipe was pretty frugal – I ended up using adobe sauce to add some depth of flavor

Here is my dad picking up the cilantro at the local farmers market – love supporting our local farms

What is also great about this recipe is that you can prepare the corn the night before – love when I am able to do that
