In tonight’s colorful, seasonal recipe, we’re basting our cod with a brown butter sauce, balanced with a splash of sherry vinegar. This sauce also dresses a hearty side of sautéed vegetables—including delicious shishito peppers. A Japanese variety, shishitos (which tend to be mild, but can be hot!) add incredibly satisfying texture to the dish, completed by the herbaceous lift of fresh oregano.

Prepare the ingredients:

1 Prepare the ingredients:


Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut the potatoes into ¼-inch-thick rounds. Cut off and discard the stem ends of the peppers; halve the peppers on an angle. Peel and mince the garlic and shallot. Remove and discard the husks and silks of the corn. Cut the corn kernels off the cob; discard the cob. Pick the oregano leaves off the stems; discard the stems.

2 Cook the potatoes:


In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the potatoes in a single, even layer; season with salt and pepper. Cook 5 to 7 minutes on the first side, or until browned. Flip and season with salt and pepper. Cook 3 to 5 minutes, or until browned and tender. Transfer to a large bowl and set aside in a warm place. Wipe out the pan.

Add the seasoned fillets and cook 2 to 3 minutes on the first side, or until browned. Flip and add the vinegar (be careful, as the vinegar may splatter).
