Grilled Sweetcorn with Feta and Chilli

  • Author: Michelle Minnaar
  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 10 minutes
  • Total Time: 20 minutes
  • Yield: 4 1x


  • 4 sweetcorn cobs, peeled and cleaned
  • 20ml (4 tsp) butter, melted
  • Salt and pepper
  • 90g (3oz) feta cheese, crumbled
  • 5ml (1 tsp) dried chilli powder
  • Coriander leaves for garnishing


  1. Brush the sweetcorn cobs with the melted butter.
  2. Place the sweet corn on the barbecue or under the grill and cook for about 10 minutes, turning them constantly before they char.
  3. Remove the cobs from the heat and sprinkle with cheese, chilli and coriander. Serve immediately as a side dish.


  • You don’t need to melt the butter but it would go further than its smeared counterpart, thus making it less calorific.
  • I prefer my sweet corn with a crunch but if you prefer it completely cooked then cook for longer according to your preference.
