I have have to celebrate you baby,
I have to praise you like I should

Grilled Corn with Creamy Chipotle Dressing
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.
