Ingredients

  • 1/2

    cup unsalted butter, room temperature

  • 2

    tablespoons fresh tender herbs, finely chopped (such as cilantro, chives, and/or flat-leaf parsley)

  • 1 1/2

    teaspoon Kosher salt

  • 1/2

    teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

  • cayenne pepper to taste

  • 8

    ears corn, shucked

  • 1

    tablespoon vegetable oil

Directions

Prepare grill for medium-high heat. Mix butter, herbs, salt, pepper, and a pinch of cayenne pepper in a small bowl. Set herb butter aside. Brush corn with oil and grill, turning often, until it is tender and charred in spots, 5 to 8 minutes. Transfer corn to a large platter or bowl and spread with reserved herb butter, dividing evenly. MAKE-AHEAD: Herb butter can be made 1 day ahead. Cover and chill. Bring to room temperature before spreading over grilled ears of corn.
