The picture really doesn’t do this corn justice but quite honestly, it doesn’t last long enough for photos to be taken!
With a household of boys if you serve food on a stick or with a bone they will eat their fill of it without complaining, I’m sure it harks back to caveman days!
These are moreish, you can use the whole cob but these half cobs are cute and if you are feeding smaller mouths, a little more manageable.
I have given instructions for cooking indoors but these work well on the bbq. Peel the husk off, remove the fronds and put the husk back over the corn and bbq. Once cooked, unwrap, dip in the sauce, sprinkle with cheese and serve.
6 corn cobs,husk and fronds removed, cut in half
150g sour cream
1/2 lime, juiced
15g fresh coriander levels, roughly chopped
1 garlic clove, crushed
Salt and pepper
60g Parmesan, grated
Boil the corn for 5-6 minutes in salted water until cooked.
In a bowl, combine the sour cream, mayo, lime juice, coriander, garlic, salt and pepper.
Heat a large dry frying pan over high heat.
Tip the corn into a colander to drain.
Now add the corn to the dry pan and turn regularly until it has coloured.
Stick a small skewer into the end of each cob half.
Using the skewer, pick up the cob and dip it in the sour cream dip, swirling it around to cover it.
Place on a serving plate and repeat with the remaining corn, sprinkle over the cheese and serve.
