  1. Preheat the oven to 200 C / 180 C fan / Gas 6. Toss the potatoes with the oil and Cajun spice mix until well coated. Arrange in a roasting tin.
  2. Roast for 30 minutes, turning once, until golden and crispy.
  3. Rub each steak with the chipotle paste and set aside to marinate.
  4. In a large bowl mix the sweetcorn, cherry tomatoes, avocado, onion, coriander, chilli, lime zest and juice. Season to taste.
  5. Set a griddle pan over a medium to high heat and cook the steaks for 2 to 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.
  6. Divide the wedges and steaks between 4 plates and serve with the Mexican salsa and a tablespoon of soured cream on the side.


For a perfectly grilled steak, let the meat sit at room temperature for 20 to 30 minutes before cooking.
