  • 2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 2 tsp flaked salt
  • Juice of half a lime
  • 125ml mayonnaise
  • 1 - 2 Tbsp Sriracha, chipotle or other chilli sauce
  • 6 sweet corn, husks removed and halved

  • In a small bowl, combine the smoked paprika and salt and set aside.
  • In a bowl mix the lime juice and mayonnaise with chilli sauce to taste.
  • Bring a large pot of water to the boil, add the corn cobs and boil for one minute, then drain.
