  • 4 corn cobs
  • 100 g butter, melted
  • 1 red chilli, chopped
  • 1 lemon, juiced (about 3 Tablespoons)
  • 1 t fresh coriander, chopped
  • 1 t sea salt
  • 50 g Parmesan cheese, finely grated

Boil the mielies in salted water until tender, then braai until charred.

Mix the butter, chilli, lemon juice, coriander and salt.

Place the mielies in a dish, pour over the butter and sprinkle with Parmesan.

Cook's note: you can also wrap the mielies individually in clingwrap, and microwave them each, one by one, on high for 3 minutes.

If you don't have coriander, parsley will do just fine.
