Corn “ribs”

Be very careful cutting the corn, it takes some practise and you may need to use a few different knives until you get the hang of it.

Stand the corn vertically upright and slice straight through the core, then slice again so you have 4 pieces of corn.

Repeat until all the corn has been cut. Mix together the remaining ingredients in a bowl and dip the corn ribs into the marinade, cover generously.

Air fry on high at 204C for 12-15 minutes to make these but they can easily be baked as well in a preheated oven at 180C for 25-30 minutes.

Once cooked they will naturally curve and bend to their desired shape.

Smoky chipotle aioli

Combine all the ingredients together in a blender or Nutribullet and blend until smooth and creamy.

Serve corn ribs with smoky chipotle aioli and freshly chopped parsley.
