    1½ tbsp sesame seeds
    50g unsalted butter
    1 tbsp tahini

    ½ tbsp soy sauce 
    4 corn on the cob
    ½ tbsp olive oil


    1. Lightly toast the sesame seeds in a frying pan until golden, then tip into a small food processor. Add the butter, tahini, juice of ¼ lime, coriander, chilli and soy sauce. Whizz until well combined, then season. Transfer to a piece of baking parchment and roll up into a sausage. Place in the fridge to firm up until needed.
