Chargrilled corn salsa

Quantity Ingredient
2 corn cobs, husks removed
2 tablespoons pepitas
1/2 teaspoon sweet paprika
1/2 small red onion, finely sliced
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin


  1. To make the guacamole, halve the avocados and remove the stones. Scoop the flesh into a bowl and mash well, leaving some chunks for texture. Add all the other ingredients and mix well. Taste for seasoning and tang, and add extra salt and lime juice if necessary.
  2. To make the chargrilled corn salsa, heat a chargrill pan over high heat. Grill the corn cobs, turning regularly, until nicely charred. Leave to cool, then cut the kernals from the cobs.
  3. Heat a frying pan over medium heat and toast the pepitas for 5 minutes, or until golden.
  4. Combine the rest of the salsa ingredients in a bowl, then add the charred corn and pepitas. Mix well.
  5. To serve, spoon the guacamole into a serving bowl and pile the chargrilled corn salsa on top. Garnish with extra coriander sprigs and serve with crackers and lime wedges.
