Cilantro & Feta Grilled Corn Ribs

Corn on the cob is a summer staple and we have an upgrade to this classic that you won’t want to miss out on! We have the ultimate corn side dish or vegetarian main – Corn Ribs! The way the corn is cut off the cob makes for this unique shape that is easy to prepare and even easier to eat. A good slather of our loaded butter and a bright topping of feta are the perfect partners to this crunchy, craveable corn!

Ready in under 30 minutes here’s how it’s done:

Preheat your BBQ to 350o F (note this can also be done on an indoor grill or Air Fryer).  Ensure your ears of corn have the husks and as many of the silks removed as possible.

Trim the top and bottom of each ear of corn so they are flat on both ends. Then cut each ear of corn in half in the middle. Take each half, stand up on the widest part for more control, and cut in half vertically. This is the part where we now get our corn “ribs”, when you then take each halves that you have just cut and cut them into quarters.

Give each corn rib a light brush with vegetable oil and place on the hot grill and allow to cook for 3-5 minutes or until slightly charred.   (This is where you can add into your Air Fryer and cook according to the instructions for your specific appliance). Get your melted butter ready because this is the best part!

Once the corn is charred to your liking, remove from the grill onto your serving platter and slather with the melted butter and a sprinkle chili powder or flakes. Top with a generous helping of crumbled feta and the chopped cilantro. For another layer of flavour, place tangy lime wedges around the platter to be squeezed upon serving. You have now mastered the corn rib – a dish your guests will be asking you to make again and again!
