Prepare the Ingredients
Shuck corn and rinse. Peel and finely mince shallot. Stem thyme. Stem parsley. Pat pork chops dry.
Grill the Pork Chops
Heat an outdoor grill or grill pan to medium-high heat and lightly coat with cooking spray. Season pork chops on both sides with half the smoked sea salt (reserve remaining for corn) and a pinch of pepper. Add pork chops to hot grill and cook until browned and chops reach a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 7-8 minutes. Remove to a plate, tent with foil, and rest at least 5 minutes.
Grill the Corn
Keep grill pan at medium-high heat and spray again with cooking spray. Place corn on grill and rotate occasionally until corn is bright yellow and showing char marks, 3-4 minutes per side. Remove from grill and set aside.
Prepare the Dijon-Cream Sauce
Place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat. Add 1 tsp. olive oil and shallots (to taste) to hot pan and cook until aromatic and slightly translucent, 1-2 minutes. Add white cooking wine and cook 1 minute. Reduce heat to medium-low and whisk in Dijon mustard, half the cream (use remaining for your morning coffee!), and thyme. Cook until sauce is combined and slightly thickened, 1-2 minutes. Season with a pinch of pepper. Set aside and keep warm.
Season the Corn
Top corn with butter and a sprinkle of remaining smoked sea salt.
Finish the Dish
Place corn on a plate. Lay pork chop next to corn and spoon Dijon-cream sauce over pork. Garnish with parsley leaves and a pinch of pepper.
