Just give me a salt shaker and a stick of butter to roll my cob in, and I'm happy. There are a few things given to us that need no improvement, and IMHO, fresh sweet corn is one of them.

Think of it this way...what are you trying to do? Corn can go many ways. Cayenne is a pepper and can stand to the side of whatever herb you introduce.

Corn. Mexican? Add fresh cilantro and lime. French? Add thyme/rosemary and a twist of lemon. Indian? Add some curry powder and corriander. German? Add dill weed and ditch the cayenne. Cajun? Add just about every herb you can find and some extra cayenne.

Think about flavor combinations by ethnicity and you will be fine.

Parsley. I also like to chop the leaves of celery to add to corn. Lots of flavor there.

And if I could just pile on a little more: I like coriander on my corn, along with salt and pepper. But I like all the other suggestions that have been made already as well...including the one that said corn needs nothing else! Corn is very versatile, and yummy!
