Chinese style sweetcorn

Starter Serves 4 15 min
This Asian flavour combination makes a great light dinner stir-fried with spinach and eaten mixed into a bowl of noodles. It also works well as a starter, or as a side to chicken that's been marinaded in soy sauce, honey, sesame oil and minced ginger and garlic.


  • 2-4 cobs of corn
  • 2 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1cm piece fresh ginger, peeled and grated
  • 1 large garlic clove, crushed
  • 5 spring onions, cut into 1cm lengths


Prep time: 5 min
Cooking time: 10 min
  • Step 1

    Remove the outer leaves of the cobs and wash in water. Cut the corn from the cob carefully with a knife, as close to the base as possible. This will leave you with the corn itself that may need a second wash.
  • Step 2

    Heat the oil in a saucepan and sauté the corn. When heated through, add the soy sauce, ginger and garlic and stir well.
  • Step 3

    Add the spring onions and cook for a further 4 minutes, stirring thoroughly. Serve immediately.
