A note about serious food allergies

Fish and chips traditionally are served with tartar sauce or vinegar. But why? Sweet BBQ sauce and salty ranch add a certain delight to these crispy fried fishies, with enough BBQ to dip your Parmesan fries in as well, if you so choose. Tradition is lovely, but innovation can be even tastier. Tip: Easier way to chop parsley? Gather them all in one hand and lay on the cutting board. Use your knife in rocking motion to cut, then turn 90 degrees and repeat until the herbs are properly chopped!

Cooking Guidelines

To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:

  • Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |
  • Seafood 145° F |
  • Chicken 165° F |
  • Ground Beef 160° F |
  • Ground Turkey 165° F |
  • Ground Pork 160° F

Customize It Instructions

  • If using mahi-mahi, follow same instructions as tilapia in Steps 2, 3, and 4, frying until fish reaches minimum internal temperature, 3-4 minutes per side.

  • If using chicken breasts, pat dry and slice each breast lengthwise into four equal strips, about 3/4" wide. Follow same instruction as tilapia in Steps 3 and 4, frying until chicken reaches minimum internal temperature, 5-6 minutes per side.

  1. 1

    Roast the Potatoes

    Cut potato into 1/2" wedges.

    Place potato wedges on prepared baking sheet and toss with 1 Tbsp. olive oil, 1/4 tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper. Massage oil and seasoning into potatoes.

    Spread into a single layer. Roast in hot oven until starting to brown, 15 minutes.

    Carefully and gently, flip wedges and roast again until tender and golden brown, 10-12 minutes.

    Gently stir roasted wedges with garlic oil and Parmesan. Use a utensil; baking sheet will be hot!

    While potatoes roast, prepare ingredients.

  2. 2

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Coarsely chop parsley (no need to stem).

    Coarsely crush crackers.

    Pat tilapia dry, and cut into 2" pieces.

  3. 3

    Make the Batter

    Place canola oil in a medium non-stick pan over medium heat. Let heat, 5 minutes.

    While oil heats, combine tempura, 1/3 cup cold water, half the seasoning blend (reserve remaining for after frying), and crackers in a mixing bowl. Stir until a thin batter forms.

    If too thick, add additional cold water, 1 Tbsp. at a time, until desired consistency is reached.

  4. 4

    Fry the Fish

    Line a plate with a paper towel.

    Test oil temperature by adding a pinch of batter to it. It should sizzle gently. If it browns immediately, turn heat down and let oil cool. If it doesn't brown, increase heat.

    Working in batches, dip tilapia in batter until fully coated. Let excess batter drip off, then immediately add to hot oil. Cook until golden brown and tilapia reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 3-5 minutes per side.

    Transfer to towel-lined plate. Season with remaining seasoning blend.

  5. 5

    Finish the Dish
