Grill corn, covered and turning a few times, until lightly charred, 8 to 12 minutes total. Five minutes after putting corn on grill, set a large cast-iron skillet or other ovenproof frying pan on cooking grate. After a few minutes, put fish in hot skillet and tortilla packet on grate. Cook, turning fish and tortillas once, until fish is no longer translu­cent in center (3 to 5 minutes) and tortillas are hot (4 to 5 minutes). Transfer to a board.
