2 ears fresh sweet corn
1/2 pound bacon
1 medium red onion, peeled and sliced
Olive oil
1 large ripe but firm avocado
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
4 baps (soft bread buns)
1 handful romaine lettuce or buttercrunch leaves
2 medium vine-ripened tomatoes, diced
Sweet chili sauce
2 tablespoons chopped cilantro


prep: 20 minutes
total: 20 minutes


large pot
paper towels
barbecue hot plate or cast-iron griddle


1. Remove husks and silks from corn, then boil gently for about 12 minutes or until tender. Drain corn, then drape with a large piece of paper towel until corn is cool enough to handle.

2. Cook bacon on the barbecue hot plate or cast-iron griddle or grill (or fry it in a little hot oil). Set aside and keep warm.

3. Cook onion on an oiled barbecue hot plate for several minutes or until it is limp but not colored (or cook in 1 tablespoon oil in a small saucepan over medium heat).

4. Using a large sharp knife, cut the kernels off the cobs. Cut avocado in half and remove pit. Peel avocado, then slice flesh thickly. Sprinkle avocado with lime juice and season with a little salt and pepper. Split baps in half through the middle.

5. Fill baps with lettuce, corn kernels, red onion, bacon, avocado, tomato, sweet chili sauce and cilantro. Serve immediately.
