Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp Sainsbury’s Mexican spice blend (from a 50g tub)
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp sea salt (try smoked Maldon sea salt)
  • 8 sweetcorn cobettes
For the garlic and herb butter
  • 1 x 125g pack Lurpak garlic butter, softened
  • 1 tbsp finely chopped flat-leaf parsley

Step by step

Get ahead
Make the herb butter up to a week ahead and store in the fridge.
  1. Preheat the barbecue. First make the herb butter: mix the butter with the parsley and some seasoning, then transfer to a sheet of clingfilm and roll up into a sausage by twisting the ends. Chill in the fridge for at least 1 hour to harden (or pop in the freezer for 20 minutes).
  2. Mix the spices with the oil and sea salt. Brush liberally all over the corn, working into the grooves between the kernels.
  3. Cook on the barbecue (or a preheated griddle pan) for 12-15 minutes, turning, until cooked through and beginning to char. Transfer to a warm serving bowl.
  4. Slice the butter into rounds and melt over the hot corn to serve.
