Striped Bass with Corn and Green Tomato Relish

4 boneless striped bass fillets
2 TBSP light olive oil
2 tsp. fresh lemon juice
2 tsp. thyme leaves
1/4 tsp. coarse sea salt
1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
Olive oil for brushing
2 TBSP light olive oil
1 1/2 cup fresh corn kernels
1/4 cup diced red onion
2 tsp. fresh thyme leaves
1/2 tsp. minced garlic
2 TBSP seasoned rice vinegar
1/4 tsp. coarse sea salt
1/4 tsp. Freshly ground black pepper
1 large green tomato or 1/2 lb. fresh tomatillos

Make a few shallow slashes through the skin of each fillet with a sharp knife, to prevent fillets from curling on the grill.
Combine oil, lemon juice, thyme, salt, and pepper.
Place fillets in a shallow baking dish and brush with oil mixture.
Refrigerate while making relish.
Prepare corn relish by heating oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
Add corn kernels, red onion, thyme and garlic. Saute for 1 minute.
Add vinegar and continue to cook 2 to 3 minutes, until corn is crisp-tender.
Remove from heat and stir in remaining relish ingredients.
Heat gas grill, or prepare coals for a charcoal grill for direct grilling over medium heat.
Heat a nonstick grill pan directly on the grill grate until hot, about 10 minutes.
Lightly brush fillets with oil and place flesh side down on grill pan.
Grill fish (keeping the grill lid closed as often as possible) until striped bass is opaque and still moist, 5 to 7 minutes, carefully turning once when fish releases easily from the grill pan.
Serve with the corn relish.
