Mexican Grilled Corn with Spicy Capsicum Sauce


Makes 4

Ingredients:

  • 4 cobs of corn, husk and silk removed
  • 3 tbsp organic butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup Chris’ Traditional Spicy Capsicum dip
  • 1 tbsp freshly- squeezed lime juice
  • 1/2 tsp ground chilli powder
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt, plus extra, for serving
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika, plus extra, for serving
  • 1/2 tbsp fine chopped fresh coriander
  • 3-4 tbsp grated grana padano cheese

Method:

  • Bring a large pot of water to a rolling boil, then carefully lower in the four corn cobs. Cover and reduce heat to low, and simmer for five minutes.
  • In the meantime, whisk together the dip, lime juice, ground chilli powder, sea salt and smoked paprika until smooth. Transfer to the corner of a small zip- loc bag and snip the tip off so that you can use it as a makeshift piping bag.
  • When the corn is ready, drain well and then brush with melted butter.
  • Heat a char- grill frying pan over high heat until smoking hot.
  • Cook the corn cobs on the char- grill, turning constantly until all sides have char marks.
  • When ready to serve, transfer the corn cobs to a platter and sprinkle with a pinch of sea salt. Pipe over the spicy capsicum sauce, then sprinkle with chopped coriander and grated grana padano cheese. Enjoy.
