Prep Time: 15 minutes Cook time: 20 minutes
Serves: 4 people
Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).
Prepare the Corn: Husk the corn and remove the silk. Stand each ear of corn upright and carefully slice down the length of the cob to create "ribs." You'll end up with irregularly shaped pieces resembling ribs.
Season the Corn: In a bowl, mix the olive oil, smoked paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and black pepper. Brush this mixture onto the corn ribs, ensuring they are well coated on all sides.
Arrange on Baking Sheet: Place the seasoned corn ribs on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Make sure the ribs are spread out in a single layer, with some space between them.
Bake: Put the baking sheet in the preheated oven and bake for about 15-20 minutes, or until the corn ribs are tender and slightly caramelized at the edges. You can flip them halfway through the cooking time for even browning.
Garnish and Serve: Once the corn ribs are done, remove them from the oven and transfer them to a serving platter. Garnish with chopped fresh parsley for a pop of color and added freshness. Serve immediately.
For an extra burst of flavor and a touch of tanginess, consider serving your corn ribs with a side of lime wedges. Squeezing fresh lime juice over the roasted corn ribs just before digging in can elevate the taste and add a delightful zing that complements the smoky and savory profile of the dish.
