4 sweet corn cobs
100 g parmesan or other cheese
2 limes
8 wooden skewers

Spice mix

1 tsp smoked paprika
2 tsp Maldon sea salt
1/2 tsp toasted cumin seeds
2 Tbs toasted pepitas

Chipotle mayonnaise

2 egg yolks
1/2 lime, juiced
7 ml cider vinegar
20 g Chipotle chillies

Chipotle mayonnaise:

Peel and char grill on barbecue until slightly charred.

Cut cob in half and insert skewer in one end.

Brush corn liberally with Chipotle mayonnaise.

Roll in finely grated cheese to coat.

Sprinkle spice mix.

Serve with a fresh lime wedge on top.
