Cajun Corn Wheels

Call it a Copy Cat or Inspired by recipe, but I have come up with this recipe from the inspiration my tastes buds got when witnessed Street Corn Wheels dish at LazyDog restaurant. I always love to explore variety dishes with seasonal vegetables and fruits when they are abundant in the season. There are several reasons for me to go ga ga about seasonal, one is seasonal vegetables are naturally nutrient rich in that particular season and second reason usually they are very inexpensive in that season. Sweet Corn is one such vegetable that is abundant in summer season. As I have made several sweet corn dishes already, today these 'Street Corn Wheels' came to my mind and that thought resulted as this tasty experiment that turned out be spicy, sassy and delicious side dish. Here is the recipe for you, now it's your turn to mesmerize your family and/or guests! Njoy!


Sweet Corn - 4
salt - 1 tsp

Butter - 1 Tbsp
Cajun Spices - 1 tsp
Black pepper - 1/2 tsp
Paprika - 1/2 tsp
Brown Sugar - 1 tsp
Lime - 1 ( 1/2 for recipe, 1/2 for garnish)
Cilantro - 1 Tbsp (finely chopped)

Preparatory Steps:
  • First remove the husk around corn and trim the stems at bottom. Cut corn into 2 inch rounds
  • Take a big pot, fill half with water, add 1 tsp salt. Add corn rounds to pot and boil for 10 min. 
  • Take out corn rounds from boiling water and set on a platter aside. 

  1. Heat wide non stick pan and add butter to it.  Once butter is melted add chopped cilantro to it and mix well. 
  2. Add Cajun spice, black pepper, paprika, brown sugar to pan, mix all the spices with butter. Add boiled corn rounds to pan, toss it until corn wheels are coated with all spices. Switch off the stove and squeeze 1/2 lime on top of corn. 
  3. Transfer to wide platter/bowl, garnish with lime rounds and serve warm, this serves as a superb side dish on breakfast tables or at grill & chill parties. 

Do not add lime while the pan is on flame. Lime can break quickly adding bitter taste to your dish. Always add lime juice once the pan/pot is off the heat. 

Will be back with another seasonal recipe!
take care until then
