Can you air fry Corn on the Cob?


Before we delve into the recipe, let's get the basic question out of the way - what exactly is corn on the cob? Corn on the cob is a vegetable that comes from the maize plant. The kernels of the corn are arranged on a cylindrical shape, which is enclosed in an inedible husk. Corn on the cob is a favored summer delicacy and is often consumed boiled, grilled, or roasted. It's a fantastic source of dietary fiber, Vitamin B6, and potassium, which makes it a nutritionally excellent choice.



Ingredients for Air-Fryer Corn on Cob:


  • 4 ears of fresh corn

  • 2 tablespoons of butter

  • 1 teaspoon of salt

  • 1 teaspoon of garlic powder

  • 1 teaspoon of dried parsley


Steps to Cook Air-Fryer Corn on the Cob


  1. Peel the husk and remove all the silk from the corn. You can use a bristle brush to make it easier.

  2. Preheat the air fryer to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.

  3. In a small mixing bowl, combine the butter, salt, garlic powder, and dried parsley.

  4. Brush the butter mixture on all sides of each corn ear.

  5. Once the air fryer has preheated, place the corn into the fryer basket.

  6. Cook for 10-12 minutes, flipping the corn halfway through to ensure it's cooked evenly.

  7. Once cooked, carefully remove them from the air fryer basket using tongs.

  8. Garnish with some additional parsley or hot sauce if desired and serve hot.
