"Gochujang is a Korean condiment made from red pepper, chilli, rice and fermented soybeans. It's readily available in Asian supermarkets and online and adds a complex but irresistible mix of heat, sweetness and umami." - Ed Smith.
3 Tbs Gochujang
5 Tbs mayonnaise
40g desiccated coconut
4 corn cobs
Make the Gochujang mayo by mixing the Gochujang and mayonnaise in a bowl until fully combined. Spoon this onto a small plate.
Put the coconut on another plate, and bring a pan of salted water to the boil. Cut the corn cobs into 2 or 3 pieces to shorten them. Put them in the boiling water and cook for 4 minutes, then remove and drain.
Then, holding the flat ends (not the kernels), roll a cob in the mayonnaise until fully covered, then roll it in the coconut until completely coated. Repeat with the remaining cobs.
