Share recipe


  • 4 corn on the cob
  • 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 lime, cut in half
  • 1 red chilli, finely chopped
  • 1 small bunch coriander, leaves only, roughly chopped


Step 1

Plunge the corn into a pan of well-salted boiling water and cook over a high heat for 4 mins until the kernels are tender. Drain and allow to steam dry.

Step 2

Brush the corn with 1tbsp olive oil and barbecue for about 8 mins, turning occasionally, until blackened in places. A couple of mins before the end of the cooking time, place the lime halves on the grill, cut-side down. When cooked, remove the corn and lime from the barbecue and allow to cool.

Step 3

When the corn is cool enough to handle, hold one cob in the centre of a mixing bowl and use a serrated knife and sawing motion to carefully slice off the kernels. Discard the centre of the cob and repeat with the remaining corn.

Step 4

Mix the remaining olive oil, the chilli and coriander through the corn kernels. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Transfer to a serving bowl, squeeze over the grilled lime and serve.
