Piri Piri Corn on the Cob


Corn on the Cob is a BBQ classic and as a vegetarian an absolute must. But why always serve it with butter and maybe a grind of black pepper? By adding a few extra ingredients, you can transform the humble corn on the cob into something that will truly blow you away with flavour!

The addition of Piri Piri Seasoning takes the corn on the cob to the next level. By combining the Piri Piri Seasoning with butter and setting it in the fridge you quickly create butter full of flavour that works perfectly with corn on the cob or melted on steak and fish.

  • 40 grams butter

  • 1 tablespoon Piri Piri Seasoning

  • 3 tablespoons lemon zest

  • 4 corn on the cob

  • 4/20ml tablespoons lemon juice

  • 50 grams (2oz) flat leaf parsley


  • 1 Soften the butter in the microwave slightly, 10 seconds, it shouldn’t be melted, so only heat up a little at a time.
  • 2 Stir in the Schwartz Piri Piri Seasoning and the grated zest of one lemon. Spoon into a length of cling film, wrap the cling film around and place in the fridge until set.
  • 3 BBQ the corn on the cob by wrapping in a double layer of foil and cooking for around 30-35 minutes until tender, turning every so often.
  • 4 Unwrap the flavoured butter, cut a slice and place on top of the cooked corn on the cob. Spritz over fresh lemon juice, sprinkle with parsley, allow the butter to melt slightly and enjoy.
