Ingredients

  • 4 corn on the cobs, with husks
  • Sunflower oil spray
  • 1 tsp Bart Ras El Hanout or Cajun Seasoning
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 2 limes, cut into wedges, to serve

Method

  1. Preheat or light a barbecue (or place a griddle pan over a high heat). Remove the outer husk leaves so only 1 layer remains. Pull out the silk threads. Place the corn in a pan of boiling water for 5 minutes until tender. Drain well.

  2. Peel back the husks, spray the corn lightly with oil, then rub with the spices.

  3. Barbecue or griddle for 10 minutes, turning regularly, until tender and a little charred. Serve with lime wedges for rubbing over.
