Before you start

Microplane or garlic crusher | Large saucepan or frying pan | Kettle boiled

Prep the vegetables

  • Peel and slice the shallots
  • Peel and crush the garlic
  • Shave the corn kernels from the cob
  • Slice the lemon in half

Cook the corn

  • Heat a non stick pan over medium to high heat
  • Add a splash of olive oil, followed by the corn
  • Stir occasionally until the kernels are browned and charred all over
  • If the corn is sticking, add more oil
  • Remove from pan and set to one side
  • Alternatively, char on a griddle pan

Make the miso butter

  • Combine the miso paste with the butter and mix until well incorporated
  • Set to one side

For the orzo

  • In the same pan, heat the oil on medium heat, add the shallot and fry for 4-5 minutes until soft
  • Add the corn, stir through the orzo, boiling water, half of the miso butter and a big pinch of salt
  • Bring to the boil then reduce to medium high heat, cover and cook until all the liquid has been absorbed, about 10 minutes
  • You may need to add more water

Finish your orzo and serve

  • Once the orzo is cooked, stir through the chopped chives and melt in your reserved miso butter
  • Season with a big pinch of flakey salt and juice from the lemon
