Method

  1. Put the corn cobs in a microwaveable dish with about 1cm water. Cover with cling film, poke a couple of holes through and microwave for 10 mins on High (we used a 750 watt microwave) until tender. When cool enough to handle, trim the rounded ends and cut the rest into 3-5cm chunks. Mix 1 tbsp yakitori sauce with the oil and brush all over the corn.
  2. Heat a griddle pan or barbecue and sear the corn on all sides until starting to char. Lift into a bowl, add the remaining sauce and toss to coat. Add a stick to each – like a lollipop – then dip each corn pop into the sesame seeds to coat before eating.
