A note about serious food allergies

Summer is the time for lighter foods, but that doesn't mean potato salad or a handful grapes. (Not that those things aren't tasty!) This meal is prefect for the light but favorable: crispy tilapia coated in panko, sitting atop rice and a mix of meaty mushrooms and edamame. With a drizzle of garlic sesame sauce on top, this meal is light in feeling, but not light in flavor.

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 shrimp, pat dry and season all over with a pinch of salt. Follow same instructions as tilapia in Steps 3 and 4, frying until shrimp reach minimum internal temperature, 2-3 minutes per side.

  • If using diced chicken, pat dry and season all over with a pinch of salt. Follow same instructions as tilapia in Steps 3 and 4, frying, flipping occasionally, until chicken reaches minimum internal temperature, 5-8 minutes.

  1. 1

    Cook the Rice

    Trim and thinly slice green onions on an angle, keeping white and green portions separate. Place a small pot over medium heat with 1 tsp. olive oil. Add white portions of green onions to hot pot and stir occasionally until beginning to soften, 2-3 minutes. Add rice, ¼ tsp. salt, and 1½ cups water and bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook until rice is tender, 18-20 minutes. Remove from burner and set aside. While rice cooks, prepare ingredients.

  2. 2

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Thinly slice mushrooms. Pat tilapia dry and, on a separate cutting board, cut into 2" pieces. Season all over with ¼ tsp. salt.

  3. 3

    Prepare the Fish

    In a mixing bowl, combine cornstarch and 2 Tbsp. water. If mixture is too thick, add 1 tsp. water. Place panko on a plate. Dip fish pieces in cornstarch-water mixture, coating completely. Then transfer to plate with panko and flip until coated, pressing gently to adhere.

  4. 4

    Fry the Fish

    Line a plate with a paper towel. Place a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat with 2 Tbsp. olive oil. Cooking in batches if necessary, carefully place fish pieces in hot oil. Cook until golden brown and fish reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 3-4 minutes per side. Remove fish to towel-lined plate. Wipe pan clean and reserve.

  5. 5

    Cook Vegetables and Finish Dish

    Return pan used to cook tilapia to medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add mushrooms, seasoning blend, and edamame to hot pan. Stir occasionally until tender, 4-5 minutes. Remove from burner. Plate dish as pictured on front of card, topping rice with vegetables and fish and garnishing with garlic sesame sauce and green portions of green onions. Bon appétit!
