Smoked corn on the cob
- 4 corn on the cobs, with husks still on
- 1tsp sugar
- Olive or sunflower oil spray
- 1tsp Cajun seasoning
- 2tsps smoked paprika
- 1 lime, cut into wedges
If you prefer your cobs without the spice rubbed in, serve them with a spicy or herby butter.
- Remove the leaves of the cornís husk down to the last layer. Pull off the silky threads. Put the cobs in a pan of boiling water, adding the sugar. Bring back to the boil and simmer for 5 mins. Drain well.
- Pull back the leaves, spray or brush the corn cob with oil, then rub in the spices.
- Put the cobs on a hot pan, and cook for about 10 mins, turning them occasionally, until just tender and beginning to char. Char lime wedges for a couple of mins. Serve with extra oil, or butter if you like.
