Thanks to the air fryer, you can enjoy the toasty flavor of roasted summer corn without having to heat up your oven or fire up your grill. Simply trim the ears to fit into your air-fryer basket, coat them with nonstick spray, and cook for 10 to 12 minutes. No worries if they won’t all fit in one layer—you can stack one or two ears on top and rotate them halfway through the cook time. The perfect finishing touch is a delicious coating of lime-flavored butter and sprinkling of fresh chives.

Ingredients

Cooking spray

4 spray(s)

Corn

4 medium, on cob, fresh

Regular butter

1½ Tbsp, melted

Lime zest

1 tsp

Kosher salt

¼ tsp

Black pepper

¼ tsp

Chives

1 Tbsp, chopped

Instructions

  1. Trim corn to fit into your air-fryer basket. Coat corn evenly with nonstick spray. Preat air fryer, if needed, to 400°F. Arrange corn in basket, stacking ears if necessary. Air-fry corn for 5 minutes. Turn corn over, and rotate top to bottom if ears are stacked. Air-fry until lightly browned on edges and toasty-fragrant, 5 to 7 more minutes.
  2. In a small bowl, stir together butter and lime zest. Brush evenly over corn. Sprinkle corn evenly with salt and pepper, then sprinkle with chives.
  3. Serving size: 1 ear of corn with topping
