Grilled Corn Nibblers® with Lime Butter

Grilled Corn Nibblers

Savor freshly grilled corn on the cob drizzled with melted butter and sprinkled with fresh herbs.



  1. Heat gas or charcoal grill. Cut 12 (10 x 10-inch) sheets of heavy-duty foil. In 1-quart saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Add onion; cook, stirring frequently, until onion is tender. Stir in 1/3 cup cilantro and the bell pepper; cook 3 minutes, stirring constantly. Stir in lime juice and garlic salt.
  2. Place frozen ear of corn in center of each sheet of foil. Drizzle butter mixture evenly over corn. Fold foil over corn so edges meet. Seal edges, making tight 1/2-inch fold; fold again.
  3. Place corn on grill over medium heat. Cover grill; cook 25 to 35 minutes, turning occasionally, until thoroughly heated. Cut large X across top of each packet; fold back foil. Sprinkle with 1 tablespoon cilantro.
