Smokey Sriracha Corn Bites

Have you ever combined sriracha and butter?  If not, you are missing out of one of the greatest pleasures in life!  The spicy tanginess of the sriracha mellowed out by the butter is a match made in culinary heaven.  

Let the sriracha butter melt into the crevices of the pipping hot corn on the cob.  Serve it immediately and your people will love you.  I promise.

Now, cook the corn properly!  Use this posting method.  It is so easy and you don’t have to worry about your timing.  Bring a pot of water to boil, throw (gently) the corn in, shut the heat off immediately and walk away.  It needs to sit in there for a minimum of five minutes, but you can leave it for as long as you like, the hot water will keep it warm but wont overcook it.
