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
  1. 1

    Roast the Tilapia

    Pat tilapia dry, and season both sides with a pinch of salt and pepper. Place tilapia on one 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. Remove from oven and set aside until fish is cool enough to touch, at least 10 minutes. While fish roasts and cools, roast potatoes.

  2. 2

    Start Vegetables and Prepare Ingredients

    Cut each potato into six to eight wedges. Place potatoes on another prepared baking sheet and toss with 1 tsp. olive oil and half the seasoning blend (reserve remaining for broccoli). Spread into a single layer and roast in hot oven until beginning to get tender, 8-9 minutes.
    While potatoes roast, cook cut broccoli into bite-sized pieces. Zest and halve lemon. Cut one half into wedges and juice the other half. Finely chop capers.

  3. 3

    Form the Fish Cakes

    Transfer cooled fish to a mixing bowl and shred into small pieces. Add mashed potatoes, ¼ tsp. lemon zest, 1 tsp. lemon juice (reserve remaining for sauce), half the capers (reserve remaining for sauce), ¼ tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper and stir until combined. Stir in panko. Form tilapia mixture into four evenly-sized fish cakes, about 3" in diameter. Gently coat fish cakes on all sides with flour, pressing to adhere. Place on a plate and refrigerate, at least 5 minutes.

  4. 4

    Finish Vegetables and Fry Cakes

    In another mixing bowl, combine broccoli, 1 tsp. olive oil, and remaining seasoning blend until broccoli is coated. Remove baking sheet from oven and carefully add broccoli to potatoes. Baking sheet will be hot! Use a utensil. Spread both into a single layer and roast in hot oven until vegetables are browned and fork-tender, 14-16 minutes. While vegetables roast, place a large non-stick pan over medium heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil. Add fish cakes to hot pan. If necessary, cook in batches to avoid crowding pan. Cook until browned and warm throughout, 3-4 minutes per side. Remove from burner and season cooked cakes with a pinch of salt.

  5. 5

    Make Brown Butter Caper Sauce and Finish Dish

    Place a small non-stick pan over medium-low heat. Add half the butter and stir occasionally until butter smells "nutty," turns golden, and brown flecks appear, 2-3 minutes. Remove from burner and stir in remaining butter until melted. Stir in remaining capers, 1 tsp. remaining lemon juice, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Plate dish as pictured on front of card, topping fish cakes with sauce. Bon appétit!
