A note about serious food allergies

We love tzatziki sauce so much, we'd probably marry it if it were the same religion as us. (We assume it's Greek orthodox.) Something about the cucumber makes everything taste fresh and light. It makes these fish cakes sing with glee; they complement each other perfectly on the plate. Tzatziki, we love you. (In a platonic way.)

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 Step 1, roasting in hot oven until fish reaches minimum internal temperature, 12-14 minutes.

  • If using salmon, follow same instructions as tilapia in Step 1, roasting in hot oven until fish reaches minimum internal temperature, 13-15 minutes.

  1. 1

    Roast the Tilapia

    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.

    Let cool, at least 5 minutes.

    While tilapia roasts, prepare ingredients.

  2. 2

    Prepare Ingredients and Make Tzatziki

    Halve tomatoes.

    Trim zucchini ends and cut into 1/4" rounds.

    Trim cucumber and cut into 1/4" dice.

    Mince garlic.

    In a mixing bowl, combine sour cream, cucumber, and a pinch of salt and pepper.

  3. 3

    Make Fish Cake Mixture

    Once tilapia has cooled, transfer to another mixing bowl. Lightly shred.

    Add panko, half the garlic salt (reserve remaining for vegetables), mashed potatoes, garlic, 1/4 tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper and thoroughly combine. Set aside, 5 minutes.

    After 5 minutes, stir until a slightly sticky mixture forms.

  4. 4

    Cook the Fish Cakes

    Form fish cake mixture into four evenly-sized fish cakes, about 3" in diameter.

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Cooking in batches if necessary, add fish cakes to hot pan. Cook until browned and warm throughout, 3-4 minutes per side.

    Remove fish cakes to a plate. Wipe pan clean and reserve.

  5. 5

    Cook Vegetables and Finish Dish

    Return pan used to cook fish cakes to medium-high heat and add 1 Tbsp. olive oil. Add zucchini, tomatoes, remaining garlic salt, 1/4 tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper to hot pan. Stir occasionally until zucchini and tomatoes soften slightly, 6-8 minutes.

    Remove from burner.
