Corn on the cob is a classic summer treat that’s loved by many. However, if you’re looking to add a little kick to your corn, try this delicious Cajun corn on the cob recipe. It’s easy to make and takes only a few ingredients to create a tasty and flavorful side dish.


4 ears of corn, husked
2 tablespoons of olive oil
Salt and pepper, to taste
4 tablespoons of mayonnaise (vegan mayo can be used)
1/3 cup of sour cream or Mexican crema
1 1/2 teaspoons of Cajun spice
1 1/2 teaspoons of smoked paprika
1 teaspoon of onion powder
1 teaspoon of garlic powder
1 tablespoon of chopped cilantro
1/2 cup of crumbled feta or cotija cheese
1 tablespoon of lime juice
1 teaspoon of chipotle or chili powder (optional)


Preheat your oven to 425°F.

In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, half of the Cajun spice, half of the smoked paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper.

Place each ear of corn on a piece of foil and brush each ear generously with the oil and spice mixture. Wrap the foil around each ear of corn.

Bake the corn in the oven for 30 minutes. If you prefer your corn to be softer, remove it from the oven after 30 minutes, brush it with more oil and spice mixture, and bake for an additional 20-25 minutes.

While the corn is baking, make the mayo sauce. In a medium bowl, mix together the mayonnaise, sour cream or Mexican crema, the leftover Cajun spice and smoked paprika, lime juice (or squeeze it directly onto the corn later), salt, and pepper to taste.

Once the corn is done baking, let it cool slightly before brushing it with the leftover oil and spice mixture (optional) and then the mayo sauce. If you want a slightly charred effect, transfer the baked corn directly to a lightly greased grill pan and grill until the desired result is achieved.

Top the corn with crumbled feta or cotija cheese, chopped cilantro, and additional Cajun spice if desired.

Serve the Cajun corn on the cob warm and enjoy!

This recipe is perfect for a summer barbecue or any other occasion where you want to add a little spice to your meal. The combination of the Cajun spice and smoked paprika with the creamy mayo sauce is a match made in heaven, and the crumbled feta or cotija cheese adds a delicious tangy flavor. Give this recipe a try and elevate your corn on the cob game to the next level!
