Load up your corn chips with a generous helping of this fiery Mexican inspired salsa for a sensational snack, or serve alongside roast chicken for a lovely, light mid-week meal. 

  1. Preheat the oven to gas 4, 180°C, fan 160°C. Heat a griddle pan and brush the corn with a little oil. Griddle for 15-20 minutes, turning occasionally, until charred and tender. Remove the kernels carefully by standing the cob firmly on a chopping board and running a sharp knife downwards.
  2. Meanwhile, toss the tomatoes in the oil and paprika; season. Roast in the oven for 15 minutes. Remove and set aside to cool.
  3. In a bowl, mix the charred corn, tomatoes, chilli, red onion, lime juice and coriander; season. Serve with tortilla chips, for scooping.
