Corn with Mayonnaise, Bonito and Nori

There’s something delicious about hot grilled corn and mayonnaise that is a match made in heaven. Pair that with bonito flakes, dried finely chopped seaweed and Korean chilli flakes and you’ve got one killer side dish!

Recipe by one of my favourite chefs, Adam Liaw, I made these as part of the yakitori lunch spread I put on for one of lunches at our Daylesford Food Photography workshop. They were a crowd favourite and were easy to make on the BBQ whilst grilling the meat.
