Spicy Basil Roasted Corn

Dinner | August 9, 2015 | By

To me, corn is pretty bittersweet. When it’s ripe, it’s really amazing and I’d have it with every meal. But corn peaks in August and with that comes the reminder that summer is starting to wind down. I remember anticipating the arrival of fresh corn in about May this year; a staple of summer meals, I was excited to start cooking and eating it again. Now that corn is making it’s way onto our dinner plates, I’m reminded by how quickly the summer always goes by. Either way, this recipe will help you take full advantage of fresh corn and the summer. And while this sunny month may fly by and the season for corn will come to a close, there’s always next year’s harvest to look forward to.

4 ears of corn (or as many ears as you’d like to make and adjust the other ingredients accordingly)
Tin foil
2 tbsp butter, softened
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp cayenne
2 tbsp basil
