  • 2 tsp (approximately) olive oil
  • 2 slices applewood-smoked bacon
  • 1 stick (4 ounces) salted butter, softened
  • 2 tbsp minced shallot
  • 1 1/2 tbsp minced sun-dried tomatoes
  • 1 tbsp minced flat-leaf parsley
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 tsp fresh lemon juice

All you do

  1. To prepare corn:
  2. Prepare barbecue for medium-high heat.
  3. Pull off husks from corn cobs and remove corn silk. Rub oil over corn to coat lightly.
  4. Place corn on grill. Cover and cook, turning occasionally, until corn is soft and juicy and charred, about 15 minutes.
  5. To make butter:
  6. Meanwhile, fry bacon in large sauté pan over medium heat until it is golden brown and crisp, about 3 minutes per side.
  7. Transfer bacon to plate lined with paper towels to drain excess oil. Finely chop bacon.
  8. Stir bacon, softened butter, shallot, sun-dried tomatoes, parsley, garlic, lemon juice, thyme, red pepper flakes and oregano in medium bowl to blend. Season to taste with salt and black pepper.
  9. To serve:
  10. As corn is removed from grill and transferred to platter, immediately spread some of butter mixture all over corn so it melts and coats corn. Serve any remaining butter mixture alongside.
