A note about serious food allergies

This meal is for those who want to eat right, but also eat delicious. The fish cakes here are light and flaky, with the salty Parmesan adding just the right note. The remoulade brings sweetness, and the Caesar salad compliments with beautiful, nutty crunchiness. This meal has a total taste great, yet less filling thing happening.

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 1, 3, and 4, roasting in step 1 until mahi-mahi reaches desired doneness, 6-8 minutes for medium. Consuming raw or undercooked mahi-mahi may increase your risk for food-borne illness.

  1. 1

    Roast the Fish

    Pat tilapia dry. Place tilapia on prepared baking sheet and drizzle with 1 tsp. olive oil. Roast in hot oven until fish reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 12-14 minutes. Carefully transfer cooked tilapia to a plate. Let cool, 5-10 minutes. While fish roasts, prepare ingredients.

  2. 2

    Prepare the Ingedients

    Hold romaine heart at root end and coarsely chop. Core tomato and cut into ½" dice. Trim cucumber and cut into ¼" rounds.

  3. 3

    Make the Fish Cake Mixture

    Finely crush crackers. Once tilapia has cooled, transfer to a mixing bowl. Lightly shred fillets into small pieces. Add crackers, 2 Tbsp. remoulade (reserve remaining for garnish), Parmesan, ¼ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper. Thoroughly combine, then set aside, 5 minutes. After 5 minutes, stir tilapia-cracker mixture until slightly sticky.

  4. 4

    Cook the Fish Cakes

    Form fish cake mixture into four evenly-sized fish cakes, about 4" in diameter. Avoid pressing cakes together too tightly when forming. They should just hold together, staying delicate and flaky. Place a large non-stick pan over medium heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Working in batches if necessary, add fish cakes to hot pan. Cook until browned and warm throughout, 3-4 minutes per side. Remove from pan and set aside. Repeat with remaining cakes as needed, replenishing oil if necessary.

  5. 5

    Make Salad and Finish Dish

    In another mixing bowl, combine lettuce, dressing, tomatoes, almonds, cucumber, and ¼ tsp. salt. Plate dish as pictured on front of card, topping salad with fish cakes. Top fish cakes with remaining remoulade. Bon appétit!
