1 tbsp plus 1 tsp reduced-calorie margarine
1 tbsp whipped butter, softened
1/4 tsp grated orange peel
1 tbsp chopped fresh basil

Set corn on floor of microwave oven and microwave on high (100%) for 5 minutes, turning corn over halfway through cooking, until corn is tender.
Using a fork, in small mixing bowl combine margarine, butter, and orange peel, mixing well; stir in basil.
To serve, pull back corn husks and remove corn silk. Brush each ear with half of the butter mixture.
