Chef Lance Corralez here to teach you how to do chili lime butter to accompany your corn. What you're going to need is you're going to need one stick of butter, that's a quarter pound, two teaspoons of chili adobo, a quarter cup of chopped cilantro, one lime, salt and fresh cracked pepper to taste. The first thing we're going to do here, to chop your cilantro which I'm going to show you real quick is after you clean just your leaves of your cilantro, you're going to do a rough chop. If you do a chop too much, the problem is it's going to get bruised and it will get bitter so you want it coarsely chopped. Now for your lime you're going to need a microplaner. I love these. These are one of the best tools, you can grate cheese on this, you can grate even your zest but you've got to be careful with it because these are very sharp. So we're going to use the cutting board to do it on. You're just going to shave and you see this skin, once you see the skin showing, you don't want the whiteness of the lime because if you use the whiteness of the lime it's going to be bitter and that's going to add an accent to your ingredient that you're not going to like. I like it coarse like this. It leaves more accent and more blended flavor. If you want to chop it up a little bit more fine, that's okay, just bring your knife across and always hold your knife so the top of your, the tip of the knife does not lift up, so then you won't have a problem cutting yourself. So we're going to add the lime, zest, now we're going to use the juice of this lime in here and what I'm going to do is squeeze it in the bowl and you don't want the seeds to go into your ingredient. So once we squeeze that, that's about your two tablespoons, throw that in, your chili, your cilantro. Then what we're going to do is we're going to take the soft butter here and just blend it. Oh this is going to be a great excellent butter and once that is almost all blended, we add the salt and we add the pepper. And the butter you use is always sweet butter, unsalted, because you are adding salt to it. Oh this is going to be beautiful and then what you do is you put it back but to spread it on your corn, you just take a little bit on the spatula and spread it on the corn this way, just like so simple and easy, so simple and easy. Again this is Chef Lance Corralez with chili lime butter.
