Time 1h20m

Yield 4 servings

Number Of Ingredients 17

Kosher salt
4 ears fresh sweet corn, shucked and silks removed
4 anchovies
1 stick (8 tablespoons) unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 tablespoon Ranch Rub, recipe follows
1/2 teaspoon paprika
2 cloves garlic, grated
Zest and juice of 1/2 lemon
1/2 cup buttermilk powder (found in the baking aisle)
1 tablespoon dried parsley
2 teaspoons dried chives
2 teaspoons dried dill
2 teaspoons garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion flakes
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


  • Prepare a grill for indirect heat. If using a charcoal grill, build the hot coals on one side only. If using a gas grill, heat one side only to medium-high heat.
  • Place the corn in a large bowl with well-salted water and let soak for up to an hour.
  • Meanwhile, add the anchovies to a large bowl and mash with a fork until a paste forms. Add the butter, Ranch Rub, paprika, garlic, lemon zest and lemon juice and continue to mash until completely combined. Set aside.
  • Remove the corn from the salted water and place over indirect heat. Cook, turning, until tender, about 5 minutes. Move the corn over direct heat to give it a little char, about 1 minute per side.
  • While the corn is still hot, spread lots of ranchovy butter all over it with a pastry brush. Serve immediately.
  • (Alternatively, you can bake the pre-soaked corn on a baking sheet in a 350 degree F oven until tender, about 7 minutes, then broil it for 45 seconds to give it some char.)
  • Combine all the ingredients in a medium bowl and mix well. Makes about 3/4 cup.

I would not recommend this recipe. The grilled corn was bland and the anchovy butter was too salty.

This recipe was a disaster. The corn was burnt and the anchovy butter was inedible.

The grilled corn was good, but I didn't care for the anchovy butter. It was too overpowering for my taste.

I followed the recipe exactly and the corn turned out great. The anchovy butter was a bit too salty for my taste, but I'll try it again with less anchovy paste next time.

I'm always looking for new ways to grill corn, and this recipe didn't disappoint. The anchovy butter gave the corn a unique and flavorful twist.

This is the best grilled corn recipe I've ever tried! The anchovy butter is the perfect combination of salty and savory.

I was a bit hesitant to try this recipe because I'm not a big fan of anchovies, but I'm so glad I did! The anchovy butter was surprisingly delicious and really complemented the grilled corn.

This recipe was a hit at our last BBQ! The corn was perfectly grilled and the anchovy butter added a delicious savory flavor. Will definitely be making this again.
