Serves 4


1. Heat a non-stick griddle pan on a medium-high heat. Rub the corn cobs with the oil and sprinkle with some salt and pepper. Place on the hot griddle and cook for 10-12 minutes, turning frequently, until cooked through and nicely charred in places.

2. While the corn is cooking, stir together all the ingredients for the Berbere jalapeño cream in a small bowl with 1/8th tsp salt.

3. Transfer the corn to a platter and brush liberally with the Berbere cream. Sprinkle over the remaining feta, coriander, jalapeño and a little more of the Berbere spice rub. Serve with the lime wedges alongside.
