Servings 4


  • 2 corn cobs
  • 1 large tomato diced
  • ½ red onion diced
  • 1 green chilli seeds removed then diced
  • 2 tablespoons chopped coriander
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin
  • ½ teaspoon smoked paprika
  • ½ tablespoon olive oil
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon cracked black pepper.


  • Remove the husk from the cobs.
  • Heat a large frying pan over high heat. The pan should be big enough to fit the corn in. If you don’t have a large enough pan, the cobs can be cut in half.
  • Once the pan is hot, add the cobs and cook until the corn is lightly charred on all sides. Turning the cobs regularly.
  • Once the corn is charred remove them from the pan and set aside until cool enough to handle. Once cool enough to handle cut the corn kernels off the cob by running a knife down each side.
  • Add the corn kernels to a bowl with the rest of the ingredients. Stir to evenly distribute everything and set aside for at least 5 minutes for the flavours to infuse. Taste for seasoning before serving.
