Grilled Corn Salsa

A refreshing side dish to have with a meal. Goes great with Asian dishes too.
Grilled Corn Salsa
The sweetcorn and red pepper complement each other well, with lime and coriander cutting through the sweetness. Grilling or roasting the corn brings out a slight hint of nutty flavour. Highly enjoyable. Really easy to do as well.

2 sweetcorns - with husks peeled.
1 red bell pepper - diced
1 shallot - sliced
1 clove of garlic - sliced
Handful of corriander leaves - roughly chopped.
1 tablespoon spring onion - sliced (optional)
Juice of 1/2 a large lime.
1/2 teaspoon of sugar
Salt and pepper to taste

1. Grill sweetcorn over an open flame in an oven set to grill, until the corn just starts to char on the outside. The Kernel should still be moist on the inside, you do not want to dry them out.

2. When corn is grilled, removed the kernels from the cob. You can do this by cutting the cob in half, then stand it vertically on the chopping board. Use a spoon or blade to scrape the kernels down. Place the kernels in the bowl, discard the core.

3. Heat some oil in a saute pan over medium heat. When oil is heated, add in the diced red peppers, garlic and shallots. Fry for about 3-5 minutes, to get the tartness out of the peppers. Fry until the peppers start to soften. Remove the the pan and set aside and allow to cool.

4. In a large bowl, mix all ingredients together, season with salt and pepper to taste.

Serve chilled or at room temperature.
