How to Make It
  1. Prepare the grill for cooking. In a small bowl, mash the butter with the lime zest, chile powder, sea salt, and black pepper.
  2. Cut a square of wax paper, about 6 in (15 cm) square. Put the butter in the middle of one edge of the paper and shape it like a sausage. Roll the butter sausage up in the paper, then twist the ends so the butter forms a tight shape. Leave in the freezer for at least 30 minutes before use (or freeze until needed).
  3. Cook the corn cobs in a large pan of boiling water for up to 5 minutes until the corn is tender (this will depend on the size and age of the cobs). Drain well, rub them in a little oil, and grill for 6 minutes over a hot barbecue, turning them frequently, until they are lightly charred on all sides.
  4. Serve the corn with a ½ in- (1 cm-) thick disk of the chilled butter on top to melt.
