Baked potato(es)

4 medium, cooked

Calorie controlled cooking spray

8 spray(s)

Corn on the cob, raw

2 medium

Cherry Tomatoes

100 g, chopped


85 g, diced

Lime Juice, Fresh

1 tablespoon(s)

1 tablespoon(s), chopped

Half fat Cheddar cheese

  1. Preheat the oven to 220°C, fan 200°C, gas mark 7. Prick the potatoes all over with a fork, put on a microwave-safe plate and microwave on high for 31⁄2 minutes. Turn the potatoes and microwave for a further 31⁄2 minutes. Transfer the potatoes to a baking sheet and mist all over with cooking spray. Season to taste and bake for 15 minutes until cooked through.
  2. Meanwhile, set a nonstick griddle over a high heat. Mist the corn with cooking spray and griddle for 10-12 minutes until they start to char. Set aside to cool slightly, then cut the kernels from the cob and toss with the tomatoes, avocado, lime juice and most of the coriander. Season to taste and set aside.
  3. Split the jacket potatoes and fill with half the cheese. Serve topped with the corn salsa, yogurt and remaining coriander and cheese.
