Stir in the stewed tomatoes with the juices and the salt; simmer 20 minutes. Stir in the dissolved arrowroot or flour mixture.

Add the fish to the pan, spooning the tomatoes over. Sprinkle with the corn. Simmer, covered, 12 minutes per inch of thickness, or until the fish tests done (140 degrees on an in- stant read thermometer).
