Grilled Corn on the Cob

There have still been a few warm evenings to enjoy over the past couple of weeks, so when I came across fresh corn on the cob, still in their green overcoats, I couldn’t wait to get them home and stick them on the BBQ. Some fruit and vegetables, like corn or bananas,  are ingenious in the way they come with their own packaging ready to be transported in, or cooked in. The husks on the corn serve as a ready made wrapper, that can be put directly on the BBQ, with no need for foil. And I can’t eat corn on the cob without a dollop of cold butter, melting into all the little dimples, and consequently going everywhere. Corn is definitely not a ‘first date’ food, but it does make a great family meal. For this recipe, I have made a spicy herb butter to enhance the sweet flavors of the corn. __________________________________________________________________________________ Serves 4 Ingredients 4 fresh corn on the cob, with husks 75g butter 1/2 tsp sweet paprika 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper …
