Corn on the Cob with Chipotle Scallion Butter

We went to the farmers market this weekend because the weather was incredible out. Not too hot at all. Its that time of year for corn on the cob where I live so I couldn't pass up a deal for 3 ears of corn for a dollar. That and I have been wanted to try this recipe since I saw it in last months issue of Gourmet, so i had to buy some corn! The butter in this is so awesome with great chipotle flavor without being super spicy. The green onions were a fresh taste in contrast to the chipotles. This dish is super easy with an incredible result. As for the recipe, I used salted butter because that was all we had and just omitted the salt.

Corn on the Cob with Chipotle Scallion Butter

3/4 stick unsalted butter, softened

1/4 cup minced scallions (2 to 3)
1 tablespoon minced seeded canned chipotle chiles in
adobo
1/4 teaspoon grated lime zest
4-6 large ears of corn, shucked and halved

rounded 1/2 teaspoon salt


Stir together butter, scallions, chipotles, zest, and rounded 1/2 teaspoon salt in a large bowl.

Cook corn in a large pot of boiling water until crisp-tender, 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer with tongs to butter mixture and toss.
