Spicy Roasted Corn with Taco Flavored Butter infused with Cilantro and Lemon

Spicy Roasted Corn on the cob With Taco Flavored Butter infused with Cilantro and Lemon

Tomorrow is the official start of summer in US and if today temperature is any indicator of the coming days I think it's going to be one hot and sweaty summer.

Happy belated father day, this weekend celebrated father's with friends in a park, perfect company and perfect weather with of course unbelievable amounts of food, it was a fun, fun day. Every party or a get together gives me a chance to experiment and try out new recipes and bless their souls my friends always  are willing to try and shower me with compliments.

Decided to make spicy corn on the cob for the picnic so here goes the recipe perfect for your summer picnic , barbecues or camping.

Todays recipe is enough to coat 6-8 corns

1 cup unsalted butter
1 cup taco seasoning
1 cup finely chopped cilantro/parsley
1/3 cup lemon juice
salt according to taste
pinch of freshly ground pepper

1. Melt butter in pan and remove as soon as it reaches the boiling point.
2. Add all the above ingredients and mix well.

Store butter in an air tight container and add a dollop of it on the hot grilled corn on the cob
Since we had quite few kids who lost their front tooth shelled hot grilled corn and added butter and tossed till each kernel is well coated.
End result was perfectly spicy sweet corn. Never the less my friends loved it and I had a perfect day spending with my friends and loved ones.
Here's wishing everyone a fun filled and a lazy summer !!
