Ingredients

  • 1 small red onion, finely sliced
  • Juice 2 limes
  • 400g can sweetcorn, drained
  • 1 large free-range bavette or flank steak (300-350g)
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 ripe avocado, diced
  • 4-5 radishes, finely sliced
  • Small bunch coriander, leaves chopped, stalks finely chopped
  • 30g unsalted butter
  • ½ tsp smoked paprika

Method

  1. Toss the onion with the lime juice, season with a little salt and set aside.
  2. Heat a frying pan over a high heat until smoking hot. Fry the corn, in batches, for 1-2 minutes until charred. Tip into a bowl and set aside to cool.
  3. Put the pan back over a high heat, brush the steak with a little oil and season well. Cook for 3 minutes on one side, pressing down with a spatula to get good colour, then flip and cook for another 2 minutes for medium-rare, or cook until done to your liking. Transfer to a board and set aside to rest.
  4. Toss the cooled corn with the quick-pickled onion/lime juice, then add the avocado, radishes and coriander leaves to make a salsa.
  5. Reduce the heat to medium and add the butter to the pan the steak was cooked in. Add the coriander stalks and paprika and cook, stirring, for 1 minute until the butter is foaming.
  6. Slice the rested steak against the grain, drizzle over the smoky butter and serve with the salsa.
