A note about serious food allergies

The milanese, the lightly breaded, lightly fried, close cousin to the parmigiana, is normally seen in these parts with a nicely pounded piece of chicken. But that delightful crunch can't just be confined to the cluck cluck contingent. Flaky, light fish takes to this delicate preparation like… like… well, like a fish to water. The analogy may not be perfect, but the meal surely is.

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

Customize It Instructions

  • If using chicken breasts, follow same instructions as tilapia in Steps 3 and 5, cooking until chicken reaches minimum internal temperature, 5-7 minutes per side.

  • If using mahi-mahi, pat dry, halve, and season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Follow same instructions as tilapia in Steps 3 and 5, cooking until mahi-mahi reaches minimum internal temperature, 3-4 minutes per side. Fish thickness can vary; if you receive a thinner fillet, we recommend checking for doneness sooner.

  • If using salmon, pat dry and season flesh side with a pinch of salt and pepper. Follow same instructions as tilapia in Steps 3 and 5, coating flesh side with mayonnaise and panko and cooking, panko-side down first, until salmon reaches minimum internal temperature, 4-6 minutes per side.

  1. 1

    Prepare Ingredients and Make Bruschetta

    Core tomato and cut into 1/2" dice.

    Halve lemon lengthwise. Cut one half into wedges and juice the other half.

    Trim and thinly slice green onions.

    Mince garlic.

    In a mixing bowl, combine tomatoes, seasoning blend, 1 tsp. olive oil, green onions, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Set aside.

  2. 2

    Cook the Green Beans

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil.

    Add half the garlic (reserve remaining for sauce). Stir occasionally until fragrant, 30-45 seconds.

    Add green beans and cook, 1 minute.

    Add ¼ cup water, ¼ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper. Cover, and cook until tender, 6-8 minutes.

    If green beans need more time, add 2 Tbsp. water and stir occasionally, 1-3 minutes. Remove from burner.

    While green beans cook, start tilapia.

  3. 3

    Prepare the Tilapia

    Pat tilapia dry, and season all over with 1/4 tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper.

    Place panko on a plate.

    Spread 1/3 the mayonnaise (reserve remaining for sauce) evenly on one side of tilapia. Transfer tilapia, mayonnaise-side down, onto plate with panko and gently press to adhere. Let sit, 10 minutes.

    While fish rests, make sauce.

  4. 4

    Make the Sauce

    Place butter and remaining garlic in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave until melted, 20-30 seconds.

    In another mixing bowl, combine remaining mayonnaise, 1 tsp. lemon juice, and a pinch of salt. Slowly pour garlic-butter into mayonnaise mixture, constantly whisking or stirring vigorously until combined.

    If too thick, add 1/2-1 tsp. water until desired consistency is reached. Set aside.

  5. 5

    Cook Tilapia and Finish Dish

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat and add 1 Tbsp. olive oil.

    Add tilapia, panko-side down first, to hot pan and cook until browned and fish reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 3-4 minutes per side.

    Remove from burner.

    Plate dish as pictured on front of card, topping green beans with bruschetta, topping tilapia with sauce, and squeezing lemon wedges over tilapia to taste. Bon appétit!
