  • Prepare the Cajun seasoning by mixing the spices in a small bowl and put it aside.
  • Add enough oil to a deep pot so as to submerge the corn completely. Heat oil on medium heat till the temperature reaches 350-375 degree Fahrenheit.
  • Cut each ear of sweet corn into 4 pieces.
  • Add each piece one by one into the hot oil. Fry in batches.
  • Fry them till they become golden brown in color, approximately 5 minutes. Once fried, move them to a plate with a kitchen towel to drain the excess oil.
  • Then brush each corn cob with melted butter (vegan/non-vegan).
  • Then move them into a bowl and add Cajun seasoning on top. Use hands to coat the seasoning evenly over each corn cob.
  • Now you can dig in! Just make sure they aren't too hot.



Deep–frying success tips
  1. Choose an oil with a higher smoke point than the desired cooking temperature. Any vegetable oil such as canola oil or corn oil would work. I would advise against using olive oil.
  2. Add the oil to a deep pot, but fill it with no more than half its capacity.
  3. Preheat the oil to the cooking temperature.
  4. Pat the corn cobs dry with paper towels before adding them to the pot.
Storing Cajun Fried Corn
If stored correctly in an airtight container, the Wingstop Cajun Corn will keep in the fridge for 3 to 4 days. Before serving, reheat them in a skillet or in the air fryer until they are nice and heated.
