Method

  • Pull any thick outer leaves or husks off the corn cobs, fold back the rest of the leaves and pull out the silky threads directly on the corn.
  • Mix the butter with the smoked paprika and smear the smoked butter onto the sweetcorn.
  • Sprinkle with freshly ground black pepper and sea salt if using unsalted butter, fold the leaves back over and wrap well in foil.
  • Barbecue for about 20 minutes until tender.
  • Open the parcels carefully so you don't spill any boiling butter juices.
  • Sprinkle with chopped parsley and serve with lemon wedges.
