  1. Step 1

    Grease an 11cm x 23cm (base measurement) loaf pan and line with baking paper, allowing the sides to overhang. Place avocado, cream cheese, sour cream, lime juice, garlic, cumin and fennel in a food processor and process until smooth. Season. Spoon into the prepared pan and smooth the surface. Cover with plastic wrap. Place in fridge for 6 hours or overnight or until firm.
  2. Step 2

    Heat 1 tbs oil in a non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. Add corn and cook, stirring, for 5 mins or until golden brown. Transfer to a heatproof bowl. Set aside to cool. Stir in olives, chilli, if using, and coriander. Season.
  3. Step 3

    Turn terrine onto a serving platter. Remove the baking paper. Top with the salsa and drizzle with remaining oil.

Recipe tip

Serve with lavosh crackers and coriander sprigs

Keep it chilled: To transport the terrine, keep it in the loaf pan and place in a cooler bag with ice bricks. Turn out just before serving with salsa.
