Halibut with Bacony Corn Sauté

Photo: Justin Walker; Styling: Kaitlyn Du Ross
Hands-on time 20 mins
Total time 20 mins
Yield Serves 4 (serving size: 1 fillet and about 1/2 cup corn mixture)
Be sure to buy fresh, never-frozen fish, summer corn on the cob and in the husks, and your favorite bacon. Applewood-smoked bacon is more subtle than hickory or mesquite and won't clobber all of the other ingredients. Just a spritz of fresh lime juice brings the flavors into perfect balance.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 (6-ounce) skinless halibut fillets
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 center-cut applewood-smoked bacon slice
  • 2 1/4 cups fresh corn kernels (about 4 ears)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons butter
  • 3/4 cup (1-inch) sliced green onions
  • 4 lime wedges

How to Make It

  1. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add oil to pan; swirl to coat. Sprinkle fish evenly with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Add fish to pan; sauté 4 minutes on each side or until golden and cooked to desired degree of doneness. Remove fish from pan; keep warm.

  2. Reduce heat to medium. Add bacon to pan; cook 4 minutes or until crisp. Remove bacon from pan; crumble. Add corn to drippings in pan; cook 3 minutes or until beginning to brown, stirring occasionally. Stir in butter; cook 1 minute or until butter melts. Stir in crumbled bacon and green onions. Serve with lime wedges.
