5 mins to prep

  1. Step 1

    Preheat the oven to 210°C fan forced.

  2. Step 2

    Cut the whole corn cobs length-ways in halves, then in halves again, so each cob becomes 4 long strips.

  3. Step 3

    Mix the rub ingredients together in a large bowl.

  4. Step 4

    Paint each corn strip with oil, and coat with the dry rub. Place in the oven and roast for 15 minutes or until curled up and roasted.

  5. Step 5

    Meanwhile, mix all the sauce ingredients together in a small bowl.

  6. Step 6

    Plate up the corn ribs and squeeze a wedge of lime over top and dust with any remaining spice rub. Serve with dipping sauce alongside it, or drizzled over all the corn :) Eat your tasty corn straight off the cob!
