  1. Step 1

    Preheat a barbecue on high heat. Toss the chillies with ½ tbs of the oil and barbecue for 6-8 mins or until charred all over and soft. Transfer to a chopping board, remove the stem (and remove seeds if a less spicy flavour is desired) and coarsely chop the flesh. In a bowl, mix the chillies, butter, lime juice and lime zest. Season to taste with sea salt flakes and freshly ground black pepper.
  2. Step 2

    Use a thin length of husk to tie the husks back, if desired. Coat corn with remaining 2 tbs of oil and season with sea salt flakes. Transfer to barbecue and cook, turning as needed, for 12 to 14 mins, or until corn is blackened in spots and cooked through. Brush corn with chilli butter. Transfer to a platter.
  3. Step 3

    Grate the fetta over the corn. Sprinkle with coriander.
