Grilled Corn with Creamy Chipotle Dressing

My Ode to Corn (with a little help from Fatboy Slim)

We've come a long long way together,
Through the hard times and the good,
I have have to celebrate you baby,
I have to praise you like I should

Grilled Corn with Creamy Chipotle Dressing
Serves 6

6 ears of corn, shucked

For the Creamy Chipotle Dressing:
1 chipotle en adobo sauce (with about 1 tablespoon of the sauce)
Juice of 1 lime
2 tablespoons coriander leaves
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup Greek yoghurt
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon sea salt flakes
Lime wedges to serve
2 tablespoons coriander leaves, finely chopped to serve

Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil and boil the corn for 10 minutes. Drain.

Heat a barbecue grill plate or a grill pan to high. Place the boiled corn onto the hot plate and grill until toasted on all sides. Turn often.

Make the Creamy Chipotle Dressing:
Put all of the dressing ingredients in a blender and blitz.

When the corn is toasted on all sides, place them on a serving platter, drizzle with Creamy Chipotle Dressing, sprinkle with chopped coriander and an extra squeeze of lime.


  1. One of my favorite Summer treats! This looks so delicious!

    1. Thanks Jessica. It's pretty much the last hurrah for our corn.

  2. I looooooooooove corn. & with a chipotle dressing? How interesting!!

  3. This looks amazing, this is my kind of food right here. Just pinned.

    1. Thanks Cheri. I love corn too. It's one of my favourite vegetables.

  4. You have to praise the maize like you should!!
    We have corn in the fridge. I guess you could say that this is inevitable :)
    Whereabouts do you get your chipotle en adobo from?

    1. Praise the maize. I wish I'd thought of that!!!! I get the chipotle en adobo from markets and delis or online. If you can't find it, I've found a great alternative that you can get from Coles supermarket. It's from Alana's Pantry and it's calledSpicy Mexico. Where it says 1 chipotle en adobo, just use 1 or 2 tablespoons of the Spicy Mexico Sauce. It's a really good substitute.

    2. Thanks Jennifer!
