Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon seafood seasoning
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper
  • 4 (6- to 8-ounce) Arctic char fillets, 1/2 to 1 inch thick, skin on
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 4 bacon slices
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped red onion
  • 1 cup chopped red bell pepper
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh or frozen whole kernel corn, thawed
  • 1 1/2 cups fully cooked, shelled frozen edamame
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • Garnish: fresh thyme sprigs

Preparation

  1. 1. Combine first 4 ingredients; rub evenly over char fillets. Cook fillets, seasoned side down, in hot oil in a heavy ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat 2 minutes or until golden brown. Turn fillets over; place pan in oven, and bake at 425° for 5 to 9 minutes (depending on thickness of fillets) or until fish flakes with a fork.
  2. 2. Cook bacon in a large skillet over medium-high heat 6 to 8 minutes or until crisp; remove bacon, and drain on paper towels, reserving drippings in skillet. Crumble bacon.
  3. 3. Sauté onion, red bell pepper, and garlic in hot drippings 3 minutes or until tender. Add corn and edamame; sauté 2 to 3 minutes or until hot. Remove from heat, and stir in chopped thyme, kosher salt, and black pepper. Divide succotash evenly among 4 individual plates or bowls; top with fillets, and sprinkle with crumbled bacon. Garnish, if desired.
  4. Test Kitchen Tip: If you don't have an ovenproof skillet, transfer seared fillets, skin side down, to an oiled baking sheet and bake as directed. Searing fish before roasting gives it a beautiful caramelized crust.
