Pour enough oil into a large heavy-based pan to cover the bottom. Add the diced butter and heat until the butter begins to foam, taking care that it doesn't burn. Place the fish fillets in the oil and butter mixture. Divide the capers between the fish fillets and sprinkle with thyme and lemon juice. Season generously with salt and black pepper. Cover the pan and fry over low heat until the fish is done and flakes easily with a fork. Transfer to hot plates and pour over the pan juices. Serve with baked potatoes and lemon wedges.
