This Mexican-inspired meal is perfect for lazy Sunday barbecues with family and friends.

Takes:15mins to prepare and 30mins to cook, plus 5mins to rest
Serves: 4

Ingredients

1kg (2lb) desiree potatoes, cut into wedges
15ml (1tbsp) olive oil
1tbsp Cajun spice
4 x 200g (7oz) rib eye steaks
20ml (4tsp) chipotle sauce
200g (7oz) tinned sweetcorn with low sugar
150g (5oz) cherry tomatoes, quartered
1 medium ripe avocado, roughly chopped
1/2 red onion, sliced
2tbsp chopped coriander
1 chilli, de-seeded and finely chopped
1 lime, zested and squeezed
60ml (4tbsp) soured cream

Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Toss the potatoes with the oil and Cajun spice mix until well coated. Arrange in a roasting tin and cook for 30 minutes, turning once, until golden and crispy.

Rub each steak with the chipotle paste and set aside to marinate.

In a large bowl mix the corn, cherry tomatoes, avocado, onion, coriander, chilli, lime juice and zest. Season to taste.

Set a griddle pan over a medium to high heat and cook the steaks for 2-2 1/2 minutes on each side for a medium-rare steak. Add another minute for a medium to well-done steak. Loosely cover the steaks with foil and leave to rest for 5 minutes while you finish the sauce.

Divide the wedges and steaks between 4 plates and serve with the Mexican salsa and a dollop of soured cream on the side.

Tip: For a perfectly grilled steak, let the meat sit at room temperature for 20-30 minutes.
