2 Cups Sugar
Place the thyme, EVOO, in a blender. Scrap the inside of the vanilla bean into the thyme EVOO Mixture. Blend until smooth. Place the fish portions in a container and rub with marinade. Let sit for 30 minutes up to over night. Pull the fish out of marinade and season with salt and pepper. In a hot pan sear the fish on one side until golden brown approximately 3-4 mins. Repeat on other side until done.
In a medium pot place the vinegar, sugar, and onion. Simmer until reduced by ¼ and onions are translucent. Add peppadews and cook for 5 mins. Remove mixture from stove and let cool. In a large bowl place the chopped peaches. Pour warm but not hot vinegar and onion mixture over peaches. Stir. Place the relish in an air tight container and store in fridge for a least 12 hours. Keeps for up to 1 week. To quicken the process you can place the warm relish in a vacuum bag and seal. The vacuum will speed up the pickling process.
