  3. Cook for 5 minutes, drain and let cool.
  4. Using a sharp knife, slice the kernels from the ears and set aside.
  5. Cut the onions into 1/4-inch slices, brush both sides with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
  6. Grill the slices over a hot fire, turning once, until nicely colored and beginning to soften, 3 to 5 minutes.
  7. (Alternatively, you can broil the onion slices in the oven.).
  8. Let cool, then dice the slices.

  14. Heat the remaining butter in a medium skillet until it turns nut-brown (not dark or burned).
  15. Add the rock shrimp with salt and pepper.
  16. Saute, stirring, until just opaque through (cut into one to test), about 3 minutes.
  17. Add the rock shrimp to the vegetable mixture along with the herbs, romaine and orange oil.
