  5. Add the corn and salt, continuing to cook for another 2 minutes.
  6. Add reserved corn cob stock and bring to a simmer, cooking until the liquid reduces to approximately 2/3 cup.
  7. Add the creme fraiche and simmer 3 minutes or until the mixture begins to thicken.
  8. Add butter and stir.
  9. Remove pan from the heat, stir in cilantro and lime zest. Check for seasoning and serve.
