Spicy Butter Barbecued Corn

Serves 6


6 corn on the cob

¼ cup combined grated cheddar and parmesan cheese

¼ cup finely chopped coriander or parsley

juice of 1 lime

chilli flakes

Butter Mixture:

2 tablespoon butter, room temperature

¼ tsp ground cumin

¼ tsp freshly ground pepper

1/8 tsp ground cayenne

1/8 tsp ground garlic

1/8 tsp sweet paprika


  1. Fold back the husks from the corn cobs, while keeping the husks attached to the cobs. Remove the corn silk. Tear a few corn husks into long strips and gather the husks and the bottom of the corn. Tie them together with the husk strip.

  2. Soak the corn in a bowl of cold water for 15 minutes. Drain and pat dry.

  3. In the meantime, place the butter and spices in a bowl and combine well. Set aside.

  4. Place the corn onto a medium heat BBQ or grill. Cover and cook turning occasionally for about 18-20 minutes. You will know the corn is ready when it looks soft and lightly charred.

  5. Before serving brush the spicy butter over the corn kernels and sprinkle with herbs and grated cheese.
