Stir through for a couple of minutes until half cooked. Remove from heat and transfer to a salad bowl. Leave to cool. Preheat barbecue plate to a medium heat. Add corn and lightly brown then remove and slice kernels from cobs. Add to bowl with broad beans. Drizzle over vinaigrette and stir through until combined. Set aside while preparing meat.
