This hot skillet of spicy Blackened Corn has the perfect blend of spices, the sweet crunch of corn, and a touch of melted butter. Spicy Cajun flavors come alive with this very simple recipe you can prepare in under 15 minutes.

  • Total Time: 15 minutes
  • Yield: 4 cups 1x


  • 4 cups corn kernels
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 2 tablespoons Sedona Sand All-Purpose Rub, or Cajun seasoning
  • Juice from lime or lemon to serve


  1. Prepare the corn. If using fresh sweet corn, shuck the ears and carefully cut off the kernels. If using frozen corn, thaw it according to package instructions.
  2. Heat the cast iron skillet:┬áPlace the cast iron skillet on medium-high heat. Once it’s hot, add in the butter and let it melt.
  3. Add corn and seasoning. Once the butter has melted and just starting to sizzle, add in the corn kernels and top with the seasoning. Mix around with your spatula, adding more seasoning if needed.
  4. Sear the corn. Press all of the corn down with your spatula, allowing it to sear for about 3-4 minutes. Once the corn has started to brown and lightly char, stir the corn around and repeat for another 3-4 minutes. Taste the corn and season more if needed. Remove from the heat.
  5. Season the corn with herbs and citrus. Stir in chopped herbs, scallions, or squeeze some citrus juice on to finish. Serve immediately.


  • Using a cast iron skillet is a must for this recipe, which is needed to create the charred textures.
  • When storing charred corn, use an airtight container to keep its spicy flavors fresh. The corn will stay fresh for about 3-5 days.
