A note about serious food allergies

Tilapia has a reputation as a somewhat, ahem, boring fish, like a high school English teacher with a monotone teaching The Great Gatsby for the millionth time. But for this meal, we've spiced up the tilapia like Lady Chatterley's Lover. Nutty, flavorful sesame-garlic sauce, mixed with more garlic and a dash of Fresno chile for heat, perfectly flavors the delicate flaky fish. Another chapter of the meal opens up with the ginger broccoli, a perfect mate to the fish. After this dinner, you'll be looking at tilapia the way Jay Gatsby looks at Daisy Buchanan. (But with a better ending.)
