- Coat grill rack with cooking spray. Preheat grill to medium-high.
- Grill corn, turning occasionally, until lightly charred in spots and tender, about 10 minutes.
- Meanwhile, in a microwave-safe bowl, combine butter, lime juice, paprika and salt; microwave on high until melted, about 20 seconds.
- Put corn in a large serving bowl and drizzle with butter mixture and cilantro; toss to coat. Sprinkle with more lime juice and salt, if desired. Yields 1 ear of corn with about 1 1/2 teaspoons butter mixture per serving.
For an extra special touch, sprinkle with crumbled cotija cheese (could affect Points value).
