CHARRED SWEETCORN & PRAWN SALAD

recipe: Kathy@BALANCEYOURPLATE
Directions

Step 1: Remove the husks of both corn cobs, then break the cobs in half and slice the kernels off with a sharp knife.

Step 2: Heat a large pan until hot. Add the corn kernels to the dry pan and spread into a single layer. Leave for a few minutes without stirring – the corn will start popping and you should smell them starting to brown. Then toss the corn around so that the other side also goes golden brown. Sprinkle in a pinch of salt. Leave to cool slightly.

Step 3: Prepare all the other vegetables and place them in a large bowl.

Step 4: Prepare the dressing: Blend all the ingredients until emulsified. If you don’t have a blender, omit the coriander and shake in a jar or whisk until the oil and lime juice completely mixes together.

Step 5: Add the corn kernels, feta, avocado and dressing to the large bowl. Toss together until everything is well dressed.

Step 6: Place the prawns on top, and garnish with some extra feta and coriander.
