We can’t get enough barbecued fish at our house. This recipe can be made ahead and served cold, or you can eat it hot off the grill. It’s fantastic either way! —Martha Benoit, Proctorsville, Vermont

  • 2 large ears sweet corn, husked
  • 1 teaspoon butter, softened
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 haddock fillet (8 ounces)
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder, divided
  • 2 cups shredded lettuce
  • 2 medium tomatoes, seeded and chopped
  • 1 medium sweet red pepper, chopped

  • 3 tablespoons taco sauce
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice, divided
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh cilantro
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons grated lime zest

  1. Spread corn with butter and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Grill, covered, over medium heat until tender, 10-12 minutes, turning occasionally.
