Corn on the Cob with Lime Salt

Anyone notice at the markets that corn is back?  Along with my recent bee sting, I’m taking this as the first sign of summer.

My favorite part of the week is Sunday morning.  We go to Sosio’s at Pike Place Market and whatever Alan tells us is good- that’s what we get.  He’s always right.  Last Sunday- one of the can’t misses was corn.

Can you hear the angels singing?

Nothing like delicious corn.  So pairing with lime salt and butter?  Why not?  So easy!

Take your lime and zest it.


Mix with some sea salt.


Shake it like a polaroid picture.


Use a baby spoon to serve extra table side.  Be thankful that you haven’t cleaned out your baby drawer.  Who doesn’t love this little bunny spoon?


For the corn- just boil in some well salted water for about 5-7 minutes.

Meanwhile, melt some butter with a little of the corn water until it is emulsified and sprinkle in some of the lime salt.


When the corn is done, take it out and put it in your salty lime butter bowl and mix it around.

Add some chopped chives on top.

Mix it all around and enjoy the first bites of summer!

The lime salt can be saved in the freezer where I will be using it again.  So easy.  So delicious.  Thank you Thomas Keller.
