  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt

  • 3 corn cobs, husks removed
  • 1 cup coriander leaves
  • 4 tomatoes, deseeded and diced

  • juice of 1 lime
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

 for the salsa

Cook the corn cobs in boiling water for 10 minutes then remove. Heat a large, flat-based heavy pan or grill pan over a high heat. Brush the boiled corn with olive oil and season with salt and pepper, then place in the hot pan. Cook, turning frequently, until the corn begins to lightly brown. Once the corn is coloured, all over, remove from the pan and set aside to cool. When cool enough to handle cut the corn kernels from the cobs, then roughly chop. In a large mixing bowl add the corn, tomatoes, coriander leaves, capsicum and red onion. Squeeze the lime juice into the bowl and add the olive oil and salt and pepper, toss through so that all ingredients are combined.

Thread the chicken strips onto skewers and cook over a medium heat on either a oiled grill pan or BBQ until the spices form a crust and the chicken is cooked through. Serve hot or cold with the corn salsa and wedges of fresh lime. Serves 4.
