    1. Lightly coat the skirt steak with olive oil and season well with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
    2. Grill the steak in a griddle pan, turning to cook on both sides to your preferred doneness (see cooking guideline above and take the thickness of the steak into account).
    3. In the meantime, make the salsa criolla. Cut the red onion, tomatoes and coriander as instructed above.
    4. Place the onions, tomatoes and coriander in a bowl, drizzle the olive oil and squeeze the lime juice over the top, toss to combine and season to taste with salt and pepper.
    5. Allow the meat to rest for half its cooking time before slicing it into thick slivers. Serve it with the simply delicious salsa criolla and fresh limes.
