  • 1. Bring a large pot of water to the boil. Blanch the corn for one minute.

  • 2. Heat a BBQ or char-grill pan to a high heat. Brush corn all over with a little of the butter, then cook, turning occasionally, until cooked through and char marks appear – about 10 minutes.

  • 3. Meanwhile, finely chop coriander roots and coarsely chop the leaves. Combine roots and half the leaves with the remaining butter and the lime juice.

  • 4. Remove corn from the heat and place on a serving platter. Generously spread coriander butter over corn cobs, sprinkle with smoked paprika and top with remaining coriander. Serve with lime wedges on the side.
