Prepare an outdoor barbecue grill with good charcoal briquettes or wood chips stacked against one side of the grill and let them burn until ash white. Brush the salmon lightly with the olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
Place the fish on the grill and begin to cook over in-direct heat (cooler part of the grill). Grill 2 to 3 minutes on each side until the salmon begins to develop grill marks.
Brush the fish with the barbecue sauce and cover the area where the fish was cooking with the reserved corn husks. Lay the fish on top and cover the fish with the remaining husks.
Continue to barbecue the fish in this manner until it reaches the desired doneness
While the fish is cooking lay the corn to the side on the grill and cook quickly. Cook the scallions in a similar fashion.
When the salmon has barbecued under the corn husks, remove and serve.
