Corn with Cajun spices


  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 1 tsp ground paprika
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 2 tbs olive oil
  • 4 corn cobs
  • 2 tbs lemon juice
  • 100g fetta, crumbled


  • Step 1
  • Combine the cumin, coriander, paprika, onion powder, garlic powder and oregano in a large bowl. Season. Add the oil. Stir to make a thick paste.
  • Step 2
  • Heat a barbecue grill or chargrill on medium-high. Fold corn husks back to expose the kernels and tie with kitchen string. Remove the silk. Use your hands to rub the spice mixture over the corn kernels, reserving any remaining spice mixture. Wrap the husks with foil. Cook corn, turning occasionally, for 10 mins or until tender and lightly charred.
  • Step 3
  • Remove the foil and kitchen string. Place corn on a serving platter. Drizzle with lemon juice and reserved spice mixture. Sprinkle with fetta to serve.


For the kids: Catering for children? Serve up corn in a cup – cut the kernels from cooked cobs and place in a cup or small bowl with a little fetta and lemon juice. Serve with a spoon for easy eating.
