When I first started this series, never did I ever think I could find something that I could cook in 5 minutes …. but there’s a first time for everything ­čÖé .

Although I’ve always loved corn on the cobb, I don’t eat it often. Mostly because i always assumed that it needed to be grilled or boiled. My grilling techniques are limited to knowing how to put the cover over the grill. That’s why I was really excited to learn from a friend that it’s possible to make corn on the cob in your MICROWAVE. And I know what you’re thinking. It must be gross, right?┬áI assure you it’s pretty darn impressive.

Ingredients

  • Corn, husked
  • smoked paprika, to taste
  • 1 lime slice
  • A stem of cilantro, chopped
  • Sea salt, to taste
  • Freshly-ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 teaspoon butter
  • Paper towels

Directions

Microwave the butter in a small microwave safe jar for 30 seconds. Mix in the lime juice, cilantro, and smoked paprika. With a basting brush, makes sure to get the mixture all around  the corn.

Run a paper towel under your kitchen faucet for one second and ring out excess water. Wrap the paper towel around the corn.

Microwave for 5 minutes on high on a microwavable plate.

Let it cool for a couple minutes with the paper towel still wrapped around (it will be hot!).

Add black pepper and salt to taste.

Enjoy!
