  • grill
  • mixing bowl


  • 4 ears of fresh corn
  • vegetable oil


  • 100 g dairy-free butter
  • ½ lime (juice and zest)
  • 1/2 tsp ground coriander
  • 3/4 tsp chipotle flakes
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 Tbsp freshly chopped coriander
  • 1 Tbsp freshly chopped mint
  • 3/4 tsp salt


  • 1 lime


  • Put the grill on high.
  • Peel the husks back from the corn, but leave them attached to the stem. Remove the silk and discard.
  • Brush some oil over the corn
  • Place corn under the grill for around 15mins until the corn is cooked. You will need to keep an eye to turn the cobs around so that they are cooked all over and do not burn.
  • While the corn is under the grill, make the lime chipotle butter.
  • Place the butter in a bowl. Add 1/2 lime juice and zest. Mix in the ground coriander, chipotle flakes, finely grated garlic cloves, finely chopped coriander and mint as well as the salt.
  • Serve the grilled corn with a squeeze of fresh lime juice and a generous dab of lime chipotle butter on top.
