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) |

  • Chicken 165° F |

  1. 1

    Start the Couscous

    Bring a small pot with couscous, 11/4 cups water, and 1/4 tsp. salt to a simmer.

    Once simmering, cover and cook until water is absorbed and couscous is tender, 6-8 minutes.

    Remove from burner. Transfer couscous to a mixing bowl. Wipe pot clean and reserve.

    While couscous cooks, continue recipe.

  2. 2

    Prepare Ingredients and Make Pesto Topping

    Trim woody ends off asparagus. Cut into 1" pieces.

    Stem and mince dill.

    In another mixing bowl, combine panko and pesto.

    Pat yellowtail dry. Season flesh side with 1/4 tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper.

  3. 3

    Make the Browned Butter

    Return pot used to cook couscous to medium-low heat. Add plain butter to hot pot and stir occasionally until butter smells "nutty," turns golden, and brown flecks appear, 4-6 minutes.

    Remove from burner. Transfer browned butter to another mixing bowl. Return pot to medium-low heat; no need to wipe clean.

  4. 4

    Finish the Couscous

    Add 1 tsp. olive oil and asparagus to hot pot and stir occasionally until tender, 6-8 minutes.

    If asparagus are thinner than a pencil, check for doneness sooner.

    Add couscous, 1 tsp. dill (add more to taste, if desired), browned butter, 1/2 tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper. Stir until combined and heated through, 30-60 seconds.

    Remove from burner.

    While asparagus cooks, continue recipe.

  5. 5

    Cook Yellowtail and Finish Dish

    Place a medium oven-safe non-stick pan over medium heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil. Add yellowtail to hot pan, skin-side up, and cook until lightly browned, 2-3 minutes per side.

    Remove from burner. Top flesh side evenly with mayonnaise, then pesto topping, pressing gently to adhere. Fish will be hot! Use a utensil.

    Transfer to hot oven and roast until yellowtail reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 4-5 minutes.

    Carefully remove from oven. Pan handle will be hot! Use an oven mitt.

    Plate dish as pictured on front of card, topping yellowtail with softened Greek butter. Bon appétit!
