How to Make It

Step 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.

Step 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.

Step 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.

Step 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.
