Cajun cuisine is known for its bold flavors and spicy kick, and one dish that truly embodies the spirit of Cajun cooking is the Cajun corn on the cob. This Southern classic takes sweet and juicy corn on the cob and transforms it into a fiery and flavorful side dish that is perfect for any backyard barbecue or family gathering.

To make Cajun corn on the cob, fresh corn is brushed with a blend of olive oil and Cajun spices, wrapped in foil, and baked until tender and juicy. The corn is then smothered in a rich and creamy mayo sauce, which is flavored with even more Cajun spices, lime juice, and fresh cilantro. A sprinkle of crumbled cheese and chili powder on top completes this flavor-packed dish.

Not only is Cajun corn on the cob delicious, it is also incredibly easy to make. With just a handful of ingredients and a few simple steps, you can have a crowd-pleasing side dish that is sure to impress your guests.

Whether you are looking to spice up your next barbecue or simply want to enjoy the flavors of the South, Cajun corn on the cob is a must-try dish that will tantalize your taste buds and leave you wanting more. So fire up the grill or preheat the oven, and get ready to enjoy a taste of Louisiana with this mouthwatering and irresistible side dish.



1 ) Preheat the oven to 425°F (218°C).

2 ) In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, half of the Cajun spice, half of the smoked paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Set aside.

3 ) Place each corn cob on a piece of foil. Brush each cob generously with the oil-spice mixture. Wrap the foil around the corn.

4 ) Transfer the corn to the oven and bake for 30 minutes. If you prefer the corn to be softer, remove it from the oven after 30 minutes, brush it with more oil-spice mixture, and bake for another 20-25 minutes.

5 ) While the corn is baking, prepare the mayo sauce. In a medium bowl, mix together the mayonnaise, sour cream, remaining Cajun spice and smoked paprika, lime juice, salt, and pepper. Stir in the chopped cilantro and crumbled cheese.

6 ) When the corn is done, remove it from the oven and let it cool slightly. Brush it with any leftover oil-spice mixture (optional), and then brush the mayo sauce all over the corn.

7 ) If you want to get some char marks on the corn without using a grill, a grill pan is a great option. Simply transfer the baked corn directly to a lightly greased grill pan and let all sides grill until desired results, but don’t overcook it.

8 ) Serve the corn hot, with additional lime wedges and chili powder (optional) if desired. Enjoy your delicious corn on the cob with Cajun mayo sauce!
