A note about serious food allergies

What's a cake without some frosting? Just a bunch of flour fluffed into a calorie-busting desert. And what are these fish cakes without the teriyaki-sesame-green onion sauce? Just a bunch of fish and panko, really. But with this sweet sesame sauce bathing these cakes, they become fluffy vessels of fish perfection. Crunchy sesame snap peas round out a meal that says "Let them eat cake" and finds the people agreeing.

  1. 1

    Roast the Tilapia

    Place tilapia on one prepared baking sheet and season with 2 tsp. olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper.

    Bake in hot oven until tilapia reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 12-14 minutes.

    Transfer tilapia to a mixing bowl and let cool, 5 minutes.

    While tilapia roasts, prepare ingredients.

  2. 2

    Prepare Ingredients and Make Sauce

    Pull strings from snap peas like a zipper.

    Trim and mince white portions of green onions. Slice green portions thinly on an angle. Keep white and green portions separate.

    In another mixing bowl, combine teriyaki glaze, sesame oil, 1 tsp. water, and white portions of green onions. Set aside.

  3. 3

    Roast the Snap Peas

    On second prepared baking sheet, toss sugar snap peas with sesame seeds, 2 tsp. olive oil, 1/4 tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper.

    Spread into a single layer. Roast in hot oven until tender, but still crisp, 10-12 minutes.

    While snap peas roast, form fish cakes.

  4. 4

    Form the Cakes

    To mixing bowl with cooled fish, add panko, mayonnaise, 1/4 tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper and thoroughly combine.

    Form fish mixture into four cakes, 3" in diameter.

  5. 5

    Cook the Cakes

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add fish cakes to hot pan and cook until browned, 2-3 minutes per side.

    Remove from burner.

    Plate dish as pictured on front of card, spooning teriyaki-scallion sauce on fish cakes and garnishing with green portions of green onions. Bon appétit!
