Corn on the Cob with Shallot-Thyme Butter

    8 tablespoons (1 stick) butter, room temperature
    2/3 cup chopped shallots (about 3 ounces)
    2 tablespoons chopped fresh thyme or 2 teaspoons dried
    6 to 9 ears fresh corn, shucked
    Olive oil

  Melt 2 tablespoons butter in heavy small skillet over medium heat.
 Add shallots and saute until brown, about 4 minutes. Cool. Combine
 remaining 6 tablespoons butter and thyme in small bowl. Add shallot
 mixture and blend well. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

  Prepare barbecue (medium-high heat). Brush corn with olive oil.
 Grill corn away from direct heat until just cooked and beginning to
 brown in a few places, turning frequently, about 10 minutes.
 Alternatively, omit brushing corn with olive oil and cook in large
 pot of boiling salted water until tender, about 6 minutes, drain.
 Serve corn with shallot-thyme butter.
