Char-grilled Chilli Lime Corn on the Cob

After a day at Taste of Sydney food festival, I was inspired by how popular corn on the cob from Kitchen by Mike was, so promptly went home and created my own version.  The secret ingredient is the smoked paprika – the smokier the better!

You will need:
~ Corn Cobs (I only did 2 here)
~ Chilli Powder
~ smoked paprika
~ 2-3 limes, cut into wedges
~ pinch of salt
~ coconut oil spray (or another oil spray of your choice!)

How to make it:
~ place the corn cobs in boiling water for about 3-5 minutes (until bright yellow)
~ once cooked, place on a med-hot griddle pan

~ sprinkle the top side with chilli, smoked paprika, lime juice & coconut spray
~ turn after about 1-2 minutes and repeat on the other side
~ keep turning so that the sides blacken slightly (or to your liking!)
~ cut the corn cobs into 5cm slices and place on a board to serve

The mayo really makes this dish, so while the cobs are boiling in the pot, mix together these ingredients in a small bowl to dip the pieces of corn in:

~ 2-3 tsp good quality mayonaise (I used Best Foods, but you could make your own)
~ squeeze of 1 wedge of lime juice
~ 1/2 tsp crushed chilli (I just used the crushed chilli in a jar)
~ pinch of chilli powder
~ grind of rock salt
