- 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
- 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.
- 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.
The salts can be stored separately in airtight containers for up to 1 week.
