Marshall’s Red Chili Lime Corn

  • 4 ears of yellow corn
  • 8 tablespoons salted butter
  • 4 tablespoons red chili lime (or favorite) hot sauce
  • 3 tablespoons minced fresh herbs (parsley, cilantro, basil)

In a medium bowl, mix the butter and hot sauce with a fork, until combined and smooth. Lay out a 15-inch roll of plastic wrap. Place the butter along the edge leaving 2 inches on all three sides. Roll the wrap over the butter to form a log shape, push in the sides as you roll to squeeze out air and create a cylinder. Refrigerate or freeze until ready to use.

Shuck the corn and remove the husks and silk, rinse under cold water to remove any silk strands. Fill a medium stockpot half full with water. Bring to a boil over high heat. Once the water is boiling, add the corn, boil for 3-5 minutes, until tender. Remove the corn and top with compound butter and herbs.
