This insanely good spicy corn on the cob is topped with the perfect fixin’s: a lemony tahini drizzle, Sriracha hot sauce, and cilantro.


  • 8 ears corn
  • ½ cup tahini
  • 1 lemon (3 tablespoons juice)
  • ¼ cup water
  • 1 bunch cilantro
  • Sriracha hot sauce


  1. Prepare a large pot of boiling water. Shuck the corn, then boil it for 8 minutes, until tender. Remove immediately.
  2. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl mix together the tahini and lemon juice. If necessary, stir in 1/4 cup water or more to bring to a thick, spreadable consistency.
  3. Roughly chop the cilantro.
  4. To serve, spread the corn with the tahini mixture, then drizzle with sriracha and sprinkle with cilantro. (Tip: Hold a finger over the nozzle of the sriracha bottle; it comes out fast!)
