Grilled corn cobs are a popular alternative to sausage and the like. However, a new corn recipe is currently taking Tik-Tok by storm – corn ribs! For this recipe, the corn cobs are not cooked whole but rather cut into strips and deep-fried. The heat causes them to bend, making them look rather like ribs. They are then flavoured with a hot spice mix and are perfect as a fancy, vegetarian summer snack.
