Savoury Summer Delight: Grilled Corn with Homemade Turmeric Butter Recipe


There’s nothing quite like biting into a juicy, just-off-the-grill corn cob during a summer barbecue. But why be mundane when you can elevate this dish to culinary heights with the unique touch of our golden-hued friend, Turmeric? “Grilled Corn with Turmeric Butter” is a beautiful symphony of flavors as mesmerizing as a Midsummer’s night dream. Come join the ride as we embark on the creation of this flavorful delicacy.

Ingredients List

Here’s a glimpse of all the everyday pantry staples you’ll need to turn a fresh corn cob into a gourmet delight:

  • 4 medium ears sweet corn
  • 1 stick unsalted butter (softened)
  • 1 tablespoon finely minced garlic
  • 2 teaspoons ground turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon paprika (optional for added heat)
  • Freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • Sea salt to taste
  • Fresh parsley for garnish

If you’d like, you can replace the paprika with a pinch of cayenne pepper or smoked paprika for a differing kick of spice.


1. Begin by pre-heating your grill to medium heat. While the grill warms up, pull back the husks from the corn, leaving them attached at the base, and remove the silky threads.

  1. In a bowl, combine the softened butter, minced garlic, ground turmeric, black pepper, and sea salt. You’ve just made something amazing – a decadently aromatic turmeric butter.

  2. Slather this magical butter generously over each corn cob, ensuring every nook and cranny is blessed with this golden goodness.

  3. Gently fold the husks back over the corn and secure with a kitchen twine. The natural corn husks serve as a protective barrier, preserving the moisture and infusing the corn with great flavor.

  4. Using tongs, place these buttery bundles on the grill, cook for 15-20 minutes, frequently turning until the corn is tender and charred lightly.

  5. Upon cooking, unwrap the corn, sprinkle a dash of sea salt, and garnish with fresh parsley before serving. Your grilled Turmeric Corn is ready to serve!
