Garlic-Herb Butter Roasted Corn
Garlic-Herb Butter Roasted Corn – corn with garlic herb butter and roasted on grill pan. The corn takes 15 mins to make and SO good!!
This week is Spring Break for my son’s school. What does it mean to me? It means that I have to cook at least 15 times from Monday to Friday: breakfast, lunch, and dinner and that’s not counting the afternoon snacks. While my 4-year son enjoys eating out at his favorite restaurants now, he actually prefers his mama to cook for him. If I ask him what he wants to eat, he would say “I wanted to eat your food, your food is yummy!” I don’t mind cooking for him, as long as he enjoys the food and finishes what’s on his plate.
This garlic-herb butter corn is one of the dishes I made for him as an afternoon snack. He loves corn and I would always boil them and he would be happy. I decided to try something fancy. I used garlic, butter, herb, honey and corn, and then lightly “roasted” the corn on a cast-iron grill pan. You can roast the corn in the oven but I cheated on the stove top. The recipe takes a sweet 15 minutes to make, and it looks (and tastes) like they came off the grill, with some light charred marks. To kick it up a notch, I drizzled some paprika on top of the corn before serving, AMAZING!
For the garlic-herb butter, I have made them into frozen compound butter that I can easily use on many dishes. You can click here to learn how to make garlic-herb butter from scratch. All you need is 3 tablespoons of it, slather and brush generously on the corn. Garlic herb butter has become my absolute favorite. I used it on bread, roasted potatoes, zucchini/squash, mushroom, and cheese bombs.
Anyway, this garlic-herb butter roasted corn recipe is a keeper, I will be sure to make it again and again!
