Cajun Fish With Cabbage and Bacon Sauté
Serves 4| Hands-On Time: | Total Time:
- 4 6-ounce skinless firm white fish fillets (such as halibut, striped bass, or tilapia)
- 2 teaspoons canola oil
- 2 teaspoons Cajun or blackening seasoning
- 4 slices bacon
- 4 scallions, thinly sliced, white and green parts separated
- 2 cups corn kernels (from 2 ears)
- 1/2 small head Savoy cabbage, cut into 1-inch strips (4 cups)
- kosher salt and black pepper
- 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
- Heat oven to 450° F. Place the fish on a rimmed baking sheet, drizzle with the oil, and sprinkle with the Cajun seasoning. Roast until the fish is opaque throughout, 8 to 12 minutes.
- Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook the bacon over medium heat until crisp, 5 to 7 minutes; transfer to a paper towel-lined plate. Let cool, then break into pieces.
- Add the scallion whites to the drippings in the skillet and cook, stirring, until beginning to soften, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the corn, cabbage, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper and cook, tossing, until the cabbage wilts and the corn is tender, 3 to 5 minutes more. Add the vinegar and scallion greens and toss to combine. Sprinkle with the bacon. Serve with the fish.

If your corn is very fresh, you can serve the cabbage and corn mixture as a raw slaw. Dress the vegetables with 2 tablespoons each olive oil and cider vinegar and top with crumbled bacon.
