Ingredients

  • 20g Cajun spice blend
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 x corn on the cob
  • 1 x 225g sirloin steak
  • ½ small red onion, finely chopped
  • 3 tbsp coriander, chopped, plus extra to serve
  • 10 cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 x 250g pack cooked red and white quinoa
  • 1 lime, ½ juiced, ½ cut into slices or wedges to serve

Step by step

  1. Preheat a griddle pan to high. In a large wide bowl, combine the spice mix with the olive oil and some salt and pepper. Add the corn and steak and toss well.
    Tip
    You can use 200g tinned or frozen sweetcorn, charred on a baking tray under a hot grill for 5 minutes.
  2. Add the corn to the griddle pan, leaving the steak behind. Cook, turning when each side is starting to blacken. Once cooked, around 15 minutes, remove the corn to a chopping board and allow to cool slightly.
  3. While the corn is cooking, prepare the salad ingredients. Combine the red onion, coriander and cherry tomatoes in a large bowl and season well. Slice the corn from the cobs and toss through the salad along with the quinoa. Add lime juice to taste.
  4. Lift the steak from the oil and add to the hot griddle pan. Cook for 2-3 minutes each side, brushing with the remaining spiced oil mixture. Leave to rest for a few minutes then cut into strips. Serve on top of the salad with lime to spritz over, and drizzle over any of the steak resting juices.
    Tip
    Slim it down
    Omit the quinoa and serve the corn salad in Little Gem lettuce cups
    Make it veggie
    Replace the steaks with slices of halloumi
