This citrusy butter with a kick of chilli will make your simple barbecued corn on the cob the star of the show.


125g butter, softened at room temperature

½-1 tsp cayenne pepper

Zest and juice of 1 lime

½ tsp of mild chilli flakes


  1. Whisk together the butter, cayene, half the lime zest and a pinch of salt until fully combined. Cool in the fridge until firm but pliable.
  2. Lay a sheet of clingfilm over a chopping board and sprinkle the chilli flakes and the remaining lime zest over half of one side of the clingfilm.
  3. Remove the butter from the fridge and roughly shape into a sausage. Wrap in a fresh piece of clingfilm and roll on a work surface to shape into an even cylinder.
  4. When you're happy with the shape, remove from the clingfilm and place on the edge of the chilli lime film. Roll the butter in the clingfilm getting an layer of the chilli and lime over it at the same time.
  5. Cool in the fridge until ready to serve, then serve sliced over charred corn with a squeeze of lime juice.
