Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes
Servings: 2


  • 1 corn on the cob, husk and silk removed, rinsed and patted dry
  • 1 tablespoon mayonnaise
  • 1/2 teaspoon chile-lime seasoning
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 6 cilantro leaves

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Using a sharp knife, cut the corn on the cob in half across the middle. Place each half upright on the cutting board with the cut side down. Very carefully, cut the corn in half lengthwise. Place the halves flat onto the cutting board and cut in half lengthwise again. You should end up with eight corn ribs about 4 1/2 inches long.
  2. Place the corn ribs onto a preheated hot grill with the kernels facing downward. Grill for 2 minutes until the kernels develop a light char. Flip the ribs onto one of the other two sides and grill for 1 minute. Flip to the final side and grill for 1 more minute. Remove the ribs from the grill and place them onto a plate with the kernels facing upward.
  3. Brush the charred corn ribs with mayonnaise. Sprinkle half of the chile-lime seasoning evenly over the ribs. Sprinkle the corn with half of the Parmesan cheese.
  4. Pile the ribs randomly on your favorite serving dish. Sprinkle the rest of the chile-lime seasoning and the cheese. Thinly slice cilantro leaves and sprinkle them evenly over the corn ribs.
