Martha's Fish Tacos Recipe

“We can’t get enough barbecued fish at our house. This recipe can be made in advance and served cold, or eaten hot off the grill. It’s fantastic either way!” —Martha Benoit, Proctorsville, Vermont
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Grill: 10 min. YIELD:6 servings


  • 2 large ears sweet corn
  • 1 teaspoon butter, softened
