Charles Gaines is one of America’s best writers on fishing. He and his wife, Patricia, are wonderful cooks. Like Charles, I have never seen the point of grilling corn with the husks on—seems like steaming to me, and I would rather quickly boil them.

One summer night at Charles and Patricia’s Nova Scotia property, watching the resident martins catch the bugs that were trying to catch us, we grilled this corn and ate it along with mussels from nearby Prince Edward Island.
