"Walk to pick it, run to cook it," was the mantra back in the days when corn turned starchy within hours of harvesting. New varieties stay sweet and tender longer. Flavoring the ears here is a trio of seasoned salts.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 tablespoons Maldon or Halen Môn Welsh sea salt
  • 2 teaspoons finely grated orange zest
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon hot smoked paprika
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons coarse smoked salt
  • 1 tablespoon coarsely ground black pepper
  • 8 ears of corn, shucked
  • Vegetable oil, for drizzling
  • Unsalted butter, for serving

Preparation

  1. Prepare the salts in 3 small bowls: Mix the Maldon salt with the orange zest, the kosher salt with the paprika and the smoked salt with the black pepper.
  2. Light a grill. Drizzle the corn with vegetable oil and rub to coat the corn thoroughly. Grill over moderate heat, turning often, until the corn is lightly charred all over and just tender, about 15 minutes. Transfer the corn to a large platter and serve with butter and the seasoned salts.
