Fish cakes come and fish cakes go, but a fish cake with the special crunch and salty assist of pretzels? That's one for the recipe book. We serve these flaky-on-the-inside, crunchy-on-the-outside cakes with a horseradish mayonnaise that has just the right amount of root spice, and broccoli with mustard (because what goes with pretzels if not mustard?) We've loved many a fish cake in our day, but not like these ones.

  1. 1

    Cook the Tilapia

    Pat tilapia fillets dry, and season both sides with a pinch of salt and pepper. Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat and spray generously with cooking spray. Add tilapia to hot pan and cook until tilapia reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 2-3 minutes per side. Transfer tilapia to another mixing bowl and let cool, 3-5 minutes. Once cooled, use two forks to shred tilapia. Wipe pan clean and reserve.

  2. 2

    Prepare Ingredients and Roast Broccoli

    Peel and slice shallot into ¼" rounds. Trim and cut white portions of green onion into 1" lengths. Thinly slice green portions. Cut broccoli into bite-sized pieces, if necessary. Toss broccoli, shallot, and white portions of green onions on prepared baking sheet with half the mustard (reserve remaining for sauce), 1 tsp. olive oil, ¼ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper. Roast until tender, 14-16 minutes. While broccoli roasts, combine horseradish, half the mayonnaise (reserve remaining for fish cakes), remaining mustard, 2 tsp. water, half the green portions of green onions (reserve remaining for fish cakes), and a pinch of salt and pepper in a mixing bowl. Refrigerate until plating.

  3. 3

    Form the Cakes

    To bowl with fish, add remaining mayonnaise, panko, remaining green portions of green onions, ¼ cup water, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Thoroughly mix. Let fish mixture rest 5 minutes, then form into ½"-thick cakes. Place pretzel breading on a plate. Coat fish cakes with pretzel breading,

    Cook the Cakes

    Return pan used to cook tilapia to medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Working in batches if necessary, gently add fish cakes to hot pan. Cook until browned, 3-5 minutes per side. Don't crowd the pan. Remove from burner.
