(Serves 3-4)


For the ribs:

  • 4 corn cobs

For the sauce:

  • 100g feta
  • 25g unsalted butter
  • 5 tbsp hot sauce

To fry:

  • 2l vegetable oil

To serve:

  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds
  • 2 spring onions (thinly sliced)



1. Preheat the oven to 200°C (390°F) and a deep fat fryer to 180°C (360°F).


2. Cut the cobs of corn in half crosswise, then into 6-8 wedges lengthwise. This step can get dangerous, so do as we do!


3. Chuck the feta, butter and hot sauce into a baking dish and roast in the preheated oven for 8-10 minutes, until the feta softens.


4. Deep fry the corn in the oil for 4-6 minutes, until golden.


5. Mash the feta with the butter, hot sauce and a splash of water to get things saucy.


6. Once the corn ribs are golden, drain on kitchen towel and transfer into the feta sauce.


7. Pile the ribs onto a plate, scatter over sesame seeds, sliced spring onions and chow down!
