Preheat the oven to 200°C/fan 180°C/gas 6. Place the sweetcorn in a single layer in a roasting tin and brush with half the butter. Season and roast in the oven for 25-30 minutes, turning halfway through. Remove and allow to cool. Slice the kernels from the cobs. Set aside. Heat the rest of the butter in a pan. Add the spring onion, garlic, leek, carrot and potato, cover and cook gently for 12-15 minutes, stirring often. Add the stock and bring to boil. Cover and simmer for 5 minutes. Add the roasted kernels and cook gently for 5-6 minutes. Leave the soup to cool, then purée using a stick blender until smooth. Return to the pan, stir in the lemon juice and cream, and season to taste. Reheat gently. Divide the soup between warmed bowls and top with the salmon and dill.
