Cut 4 medium onions crosswise into 1/2 inch-thick slices. Grill 8-10 minutes per side. Sprinkle with 3 tablespoons of finely chopped roasted red peppers and 8 basil leaves, sliced.

Submerge 4 ears in husk in cold water for at least 15 minutes. Grill 25 minutes, turning occasionally. Remove husks and silk. Brush with 2 tablespoons melted butter and sprinkle with 1/8 teaspoons smoked paprika.
