Get the barbecue ready and wait until the coals are glowing white. Meanwhile, boil the corn in salted water for 5 mins. Cool under running water and pat dry.
Barbecue the peppers for 10-15 mins, turning regularly, until the skins are charred. Put in a bowl, cover and leave until cool enough to handle. Barbecue the corn for 5 mins, turning regularly, until tender and blackened here and there.
