  1. Preheat the oven to 220°C, 200°C Fan, Gas Mark 7. Prick the potatoes with a fork, place on a plate and microwave on HIGH for 6½ minutes. Turn the potatoes over and microwave for a further 3½ minutes.
  2. Transfer the potatoes to a baking sheet and brush with the oil. Season and bake for  20 minutes until the skin is crisp and the flesh is soft. Reduce the temperature to 200°C, 180°C Fan, Gas Mark 6 if the potatoes brown too quickly.
  3. Heat a small non-stick pan over a medium to high heat and toast the cumin seeds for 30 seconds to 1 minute until fragrant. Remove from the pan and set aside to cool.
  4. Mix the Cheese, sweetcorn, tomatoes and coriander together. Scatter with the lime zest and cumin seeds then mix well to combine.
