Corn Ribs with Tomato Salsa

Recipe by Magda | yummytitbitsCourse: Lunch, Snacks, SidesDifficulty: Easy


Total time




  • Corn Ribs:
  • 2 sweetcorn cobs

  • 100 ml extra virgin olive oil

  • Herbs and spices: 1 tsp oregano, 2 tsp smoked paprika, 1/4 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp ground black pepper, pinch cayenne pepper

  • Tomato Salsa:
  • 2 large vine tomatoes, finely chopped

  • 1/2 red chilli pepper, finely chopped

  • handful fresh coriander, finely chopped

  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped

  • 1/4 red onion, finely chopped

  • 1/2 lime, juiced

  • salt to taste


  • Corn Ribs:
  • To cut the corn into ribs, stand each cob vertically on a chopping board and use a large sharp knife and a rocking motion through the top to carefully cut through the centre. Then repeat with the same technique, cutting it in half again so you’re left with quarters.
  • In a small bowl, mix together the olive oil, oregano, smoked paprika, cayenne pepper, salt and black pepper. Brush this over the pieces of corn so all the kernels are coated.
  • Lay the corn on a lined baking tray and bake for 25-30 minutes at 2000C. Check half way through and turn, checking to see they are cooking evenly. Brush with leftover olive oil mixture.
  • Tomato Salsa:
  • Combine the tomatoes, red onion, garlic, red onion, lime juice, and coriander in a bowl. Add pinch of salt. Stir, then refrigerate until ready to serve.
  • When corn ribs are ready to serve, place them on a plate, then spoon tomato salsa on top. Enjoy!


  • To achieve smoky and crispy ribs turn on grill setting and bake corn for about 3 additional minutes.
  • Please be careful chopping the corn. If you’re nervous about it, then skip this one – don’t worry, the whole corn on the cob will taste just as good with the same seasonings! Alternatively, chop the cobs in half first – the ‘shorter’ pieces will be easier to chop while standing vertical on the surface.
