  • 6–8 cobs sweetcorn
  • 150 g feta, finely grated
  • 3–4 limes, halved
  • 1 cup thick mayonnaise
  • Sea salt, to taste
  • Chilli powder, for serving
  1. Boil the corn for 5 minutes or until tender. Drain, then pierce the cobs with a wooden skewer so that you can hold them.
  2. Spread the cheese out onto a plate. Rub a lime half over each corn cob and use a small metal spatula to spread them with mayonnaise. Roll in the grated cheese and season with salt and chilli powder.

Cook's note: Put out a bowl of corn, the limes, mayo and cheese for a DIY treat. Plus hot damp towels!”
