Heat oil in a large, heavy deep skillet or Dutch oven over medium heat. Add onion, bell pepper and celery; cook, stirring often, until tender, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and saut for another minute.
Stir in tomatoes, broth, okra, corn, bay leaf, thyme, salt if desired, and cayenne pepper. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer for 20 minutes.
Just before serving, stir in fish and cover. Cook, stirring gently 2 or 3 times, until fish is just cooked through, about 5 minutes.
Remove bay leaf and season with hot sauce.
