One thing I love about summer is getting fresh corn. This corn is cooked in the air fryer (only because it was too hot to grill it) then slathered with a butter mixture of smoky paprika, parmesan cheese and cilantro. This corn makes a very tasty addition to any BBQ.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup softened butter
  • 1 TBS mayonnaise
  • 1/2 tsp. smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp. dried cilantro or 1 TBS fresh cilantro plus more for garnish; I used dried because it seemed to work better for this
  • 1 1/2 TBS grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 to 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp. lime juice; if you are making this a head of time wait to add the lime juice right before using.
  • olive oil or canola oil (if you are not using the air fryer or the grill, you can omit this)
  • corn on the cob, husks and silk removed

Instructions

  1. In a small bowl mix together the butter, mayonnaise, paprika, cilantro, parmesan cheese, chili powder and lime juice; set aside

Air Fryer Directions

  1. Preheat the air fryer to 400°F or 200°C
  2. Brush the corn with canola or olive oil and place in to the air fryer basket.
  3. Cook for 5 minutes and turn the corn over.
  4. Cook for another 4 minutes or until corn is cooked. *Note* Cooking time will depend on size and brand of air fryer.
  5. Carefully remove the corn and brush or spoon the butter mixture on to the corn.

Grilling Directions:

  1. Brush the corn with oil
  2. Place the corn on the grill at medium high heat
  3. Grill for about 6 to 8 minutes or until the corn is done, turning frequently
  4. Brush or spoon the butter mixture on to the corn.

Microwave Directions:

  1. Place the corn in a deep microwave safe cooking dish. Add about 1/4 cup of water to the bottom of the dish. Place plastic wrap over the top and microwave on high
  2. For 1-2 ears 3 to 4 minutes or until corn is tender
  3. 4 ears 5 to 6 minutes or until corn is tender
  4. *Note* cooking times may depend on the size and power of the microwave
  5. brush or spoon the butter mixture on to the corn.

Boiling Directions:

  1. Fill a large pot with water, season with salt if desired. Bring the water to boil and add the corn. Be sure not to over fill the pot or the water will splash out when you add the corn.
  2. Boil for about 4 to 5 minutes or until the corn is tender.
