Main

    Heat a barbecue or char-grill pan to high heat. Peel back the corn husks but don’t detach them (if the corn has a lot of husks, discard some of the outer leaves), remove silk and drizzle corn with oil, season to taste, then fold the husks back over the corn. Grill corn, turning occasionally, until charred and tender (10-15 minutes).

    Meanwhile, beat butter in a bowl until pale and fluffy, then stir in remaining ingredients.
