admin's picture
  Unsalted butter 4 Ounce (100 gram / 1/2 cup)
  Orange 1 , rind grated
  Lemon 1 , rind grated
  Lime 1 , rind grated
  Ground cinnamon 1 Teaspoon
  Freshly ground black pepper To Taste
  Sweetcorn cobs 6 , husks removed

Mash the butter with the grated orange, lemon and lime rinds, the cinnamon and a little salt and pepper.
Lay the cobs on six pieces of foil, shiny side up, and spread all over with the butter mixture.
Wrap loosely but securely.
Barbecue for 12-15 minutes until the corn is tender, turning occasionally.
Transfer to serving plates and allow guests to unwrap their own to get the full fragrance of the corn.
NOTE: If the cobs are large, which means they might not be so tender, par-boil in lightly salted water for 5 minutes and drain thoroughly before coating with the flavoured butter and wrapping in foil.
