Sweet Corn with Dukkah & Garlic Butter

Plump, sweet kernels that burst in your mouth, melted butter waiting to be licked from your lips — is there any greater pleasure than corn on the cob?

Preparation Time: 5 - 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 15 minutes

Ingredients (serves 4)

1 1/2 tbs soften butter
1 - 2 tbs Zesty Oregon Dukkah
1 small garlic clove, finely chopped
4 sweet corncobs, husks intact


1. Combine softened butter, Oregon Dukkah and garlic in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper.
2. Rinse the corncobs and place them in a shallow microwave-safe dish. Cook in microwave on high for 12 minutes or until tender. Set aside for 1-2 minutes to cool. Remove husks and silk.
3. Place the corncobs in a serving dish and spread with the butter mixture.

If you like to grill, here is another option. Carefully remove the silk from the ears but leave the husks on. Soak the ears for about 10 minutes in water. Place the corn on a hot grill, turning two or three times every 5 minutes. Remove the corn from the grill. Be careful removing the husk, as they will be hot. Spread the butter mixture on the corn and enjoy!
