  • 1 tsp garlic powder

  • On a BBQ heated on medium to high heat cook your wrapped corn for 15 minutes. Rotating on each side throughout.
  • Remove the foil (carefully it will be hot!) and place the corn on the cob back on the grill for about 5 minutes. Rotating to every side. We are just looking to get a bit of colour on them.
  • To make your drizzle add your mayo, water, lime juice, finely chopped cilantro, garlic powder and pepper to a bowl and mix together.
  • Prepare your avocado by finely dicing as small as you can get it.
