  • 8 small corn on the cob

    Butter is a dairy product made from separating whole milk or cream into fat and…

  • 1 tbsp chopped coriander
  • 2 tsp ancho chilli powder (see below) or smoked paprika


  1. Boil a large pan of water. Add some salt and the corn. Boil for 10 mins. Meanwhile, mix the butter with coriander and chilli powder. When ready to serve, drain the corn, then add the butter mixture to the pan so it melts on all sides of the corn.
