Ingredients

Salsa
1 cup yellow corn
1 cup diced tomatoes or quartered cherry tomatoes
1/4 cup diced red or white onion
2 Tbsp. minced scallions
3 Tbsp. fresh lime juice
1/2 Tbsp. olive oil
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
1/4 tsp. sugar
Steak
1 lb. flank steak
Nonstick cooking spray
2 tsp. paprika
1 tsp. chili powder
1/2 tsp. kosher salt
1/4tsp.freshly ground black pepper
1Tbsp.olive oil

Directions

  1. In a medium bowl, combine all the ingredients for the salsa; set aside.
  2. Trim any excess fat from the flank steak. Using a sharp knife, make 3 diagonal slashes across the top surface of the steak, cutting about 1/3 of the way through. This prevents the steak from curling on the grill.
  3. Preheat the grill or broiler to medium-high heat. Coat the grill rack with nonstick cooking spray. Combine the paprika, chili powder, salt, and black pepper. Brush both sides of the steak with the 1 Tbsp. olive oil. Sprinkle the steak with the spice mixture. Grill the steak, about 4 to 6 inches from the heat source, for about 5 minutes per side or until desired doneness.
  4. Remove the steak from the grill onto a carving board; let stand for 5 minutes. To slice, cut diagonally across the grain into thin slices. Serve with the salsa and, if desired, corn tortillas and lime wedges.
