Easy Air Fried Corn Ribs

Easy Air Fried Corn Ribs

These air fried corn ribs are reminiscent of Mexican street corn, but each ear is split into quarters and then air fried. I used frozen corn on the cob which I thawed.

  • Serves: 16 persons



  1. Step 1

    Preheat an air fryer to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C) for 7 minutes.
  2. Step 2

    Meanwhile stand corn cobs on the end, and with a sharp knife (I used a wüsthof nakiri) cut each ear down the middle. Place corn cob halves flat on a cutting board and cut in half lengthwise (you will get a total of 4 'ribs' per ear of corn).
  3. Step 3

    Spray each corn rib with non-stick spray. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons of seasoning over the 16 corn ribs.
  4. Step 4

    Air fry corn ribs in batches for a total of 12 minutes. Remove from air fryer.
  5. Step 5

    Drizzle crema con sal over corn 'ribs' and sprinkle with cotija cheese and remaining seasoning. Garnish with chopped cilantro.
