Before You Cook

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 12 or 24 oz. mahi-mahi, follow same instructions as tilapia in Steps 3 and 5, cooking in batches if necessary until mahi-mahi reaches minimum internal temperature, 3-5 minutes per side.

  • If using shrimp, pat dry. Follow same instructions as tilapia in Step 5, cooking until shrimp reach minimum internal temperature, 2-3 minutes per side.

  1. 1

    Make the Slaw

    Reserve dill top for garnish. Stem and coarsely chop remaining dill. In a mixing bowl, combine matchstick carrots, ⅓ the sour cream (reserve remaining for sauce), seasoning blend, chopped dill, and 1 tsp. olive oil. Set aside.

  2. 2

    Bake the Potatoes

    Slice potatoes into ¼" rounds. Place potatoes on prepared baking sheet and toss with 1 Tbsp. olive oil, ¼ tsp. salt, and ¼ tsp. pepper. Massage oil and seasoning into potatoes. Spread into a single layer (some overlap is OK) and bake in hot oven until browned, 18-22 minutes, flipping once halfway through. While potatoes bake, prepare remaining ingredients.

  3. 3

    Prepare Ingredients and Make Spicy Cream

    Finely crush crackers. In another mixing bowl, combine remaining sour cream and hot sauce (to taste). Set aside. Pat tilapia dry and, on a separate cutting board, cut into 2" pieces.

  4. 4

    Heat Oil and Make Batter

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat and add canola oil. Heat oil, 3-5 minutes. While oil heats, combine tempura mix and ¼ cup cold water in another mixing bowl until a thin batter forms. Gently stir in crackers. Batter should be thin enough to easily coat fish. If too thick, add additional cold water, 1 Tbsp. at a time. Test oil by adding a pinch of batter. It should sizzle gently. If it browns immediately, turn heat down and let oil cool. If it doesn't brown, increase heat.

  5. 5

    Fry Tilapia and Finish Dish

    Line a plate with a paper towel. Working in batches, dip tilapia pieces in batter, coating both sides. Carefully add tilapia pieces to hot oil and cook until golden brown and tilapia reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 3-5 minutes per side. Transfer cooked tilapia to towel-lined plate. Repeat with remaining tilapia. Season cooked tilapia with a pinch of salt. Plate dish as pictured on front of card, topping tilapia with spicy cream and garnishing with whole dill leaves. Bon appétit!
