Grilled sweetcorn

In this recipe, shared with you from My Food Bag, corn takes centre stage cooked on the barbie with a Mexican-inspired flavour blend. The humble corn cob is a wonderfully versatile veggie that adds a hint of sweetness to many a dish. Perfection!

Method:

  1. Before you start. Preheat the BBQ grill to medium-high, if using.
  2. Prep corn. Peel husks from corn but leave the husk attached at the end.
  3. Make marinade. Combine olive oil, smoked paprika, chilli and lime in a bowl with a pinch of salt.
  4. Cook corn. Brush or spoon the oil mixture over the corn. Heat a dry grill fry pan on medium-high heat. Cook corn for about 10 minutes, turning often, until charred and tender.
  5. To finish. Prep parsley.
  6. Serve. Corn on a platter topped with parsley.

Tips:

  • Use dried chilli flakes instead of fresh chilli, or leave them out if you prefer less spice.
  • Garnish with another fresh herb like coriander if you don’t have fresh parsley.
