Corn Ribs

Corn Ribs

Corn ribs are quartered pieces of corn on the cob that are either baked, deep-fried or air-fried. These have been popping up all over TikTok and online, so we thought it was time we gave them a try! *** PLEASE BE CAREFUL CUTTING YOUR CORN. KEEP ALL YOUR FINGERS AND TOES OUT THE WAY! ***

  • 2 sweetcorn cobs
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp garlic salt
  • Olive oil

For the dipping sauce

  • 2 tbsp Mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp ketchup
  • Zest and juice of 1 lime
  • 1 tsp garlic salt
  1. Peel and discard the husks from the corn, and any fibres underneath. With a sharp knife, cut off the bottom 1cm or so, so that you have a flat base.
  2. Sit the corn on the flat base, then cut it half, cutting down the length of the corn. It will be quite tough – be careful!
  3. Lay the two halves down, then cut them into about three ribs, again, cutting lengthways, and keeping some of the middle intact. Each rib should be about three-four kernels wide.
  4. Make your marinade by mixing oil with the cumin, smoked paprika and garlic salt.
  5. Thoroughly coat the ribs, the more marinade the better!  Bake at 190 C until curled and crispy, roughly 25 mins.
  6. While they are in the oven, make your dipping sauce by mixing all ingredients.
  7. We topped our ribs with some feta cheese, lime juice and fresh chives. Enjoy them straight away while they are nice and hot. 

If you have an air-fryer availbale to you, then definitely use that! They will curl better in the air fryer than they do in the oven. (They still curl in the oven, but just take a bit longer).
