Low Sodium Herbed Grilled Corn
  • ½ c butter, unsalted
  • 2 tbsp fresh parsley, minced
  • 2 tbsp fresh chives, minced
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • ½ tsp cayenne pepper (or per taste)
  • 8 ears sweet corn, husked
  • 1-2 fresh limes (opt but highly recommended!)
  1. In a small bowl, beat the first five ingredients until blended. Spread 1 tablespoon mixture over each ear of corn. Wrap corn individually in heavy-duty foil.
  2. Grill corn, covered, over medium heat 10-15 minutes or until tender, turning occasionally. Open foil carefully to allow steam to escape.

Notes: I didn't use all the butter (more like 1-2 tsp/corn) so depending on how heavy-handed you are with your butter, it can have significantly less calories and fat.
