  1. Preheat the oven to gas 3, 170°C, fan 150°C. 
  2. In a bowl, roughly mash the avocado with a fork. Stir through most of the lime juice and season with salt. Cover the surface of the avocado with clingfilm (to stop it browning) and chill until ready to serve.
  3. Wrap the tortillas in foil and put them in the oven to warm through (or griddle them quickly just before serving). Put the yogurt in a small serving bowl and stir through the sriracha.
  4. Place a corn on the cob on its end on a chopping board and slice downwards to remove the kernels. Repeat with the other cob. Heat a large, heavy frying pan over a medium heat until very hot, then add the sweetcorn in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, for 1-2 mins until charred on one side. Stir and char again for 1-2 mins. Scrape into a heatproof serving bowl, add the remaining lime juice, then transfer to the oven to keep warm.
  5. Wipe out the pan and add the halloumi slices in one layer. Cook for 1 min or until browned on one side, then turn over and cook the other side for about 30 secs until browned.
  6. Serve the warm tortillas with the avocado, sweetcorn, halloumi, sriracha yogurt, coriander and lime wedges, if using.
