How to Make It

Step 1

Heat the oven to 450°. In a large roasting pan, combine the red and green bell peppers, the corn, 1 tablespoon of the oil, and 1/4 teaspoon each of the salt, pepper, and thyme. Roast in the oven until the corn and peppers start to brown, about 12 minutes, stirring twice.

Step 2

Rub the remaining tablespoon oil over both sides of the fish. Sprinkle the fish with the remaining 1/4 teaspoon each salt, pepper, and thyme. Remove the roasting pan from the oven and push the corn-and-pepper mixture to the sides of the pan. Put the fish in the center of the pan, skin-side down, and cook until just done, about 15 minutes for 1-inch-thick fillets. Serve the fish with the corn and peppers.

Step 3

Fish Alternatives: Other moderately firm fish to roast here include tilefish, sea bass, and cod. If the fillets are skinned, coat them with a bit of oil before adding to the pan.

Step 4

Test-Kitchen Tip: If using frozen corn kernels, let them defrost if you can; it only takes a few minutes. Measure the corn first thing and it will be defrosted by the time you're ready for it. Pat the corn dry with a paper towel after defrosting so that the excess moisture won't get in the way during cooking and make browning impossible.

Step 5

Wine Recommendation: Any number of light white wines will go nicely with this. Try a chardonnay from France, such as a Mâcon-Villages or one of the newer-styled chardonnays from the Pays d'Oc region.
