Tunisian-Spiced Tilapia with Chermoula
plus Jeweled Rice & Garlicky Green Beans
We’ve all heard that we need more fish in our diet, and boy have we got a tasty one on the line for you! You’ll season tilapia, one of the mildest white fish, with a deeply flavored spice blend that includes caraway, turmeric, and smoked paprika. The fillets are served with garlicky roasted green beans and our spin on jeweled rice—tinted yellow with earthy turmeric and studded with sweet golden raisins and bright lemon zest. It’s all topped with chermoula, a bright, herbaceous, slightly spicy sauce made with parsley, lemon, and jalapeño. Go fish? Absolutely!
Produced in a facility that processes eggs, milk, fish, peanuts, sesame, shellfish, soy, tree nuts, and wheat.
Tunisian Spice Blend
Not included in your delivery
• Adjust rack to top position and preheat oven to 425 degrees. Wash and dry produce. • In a small pot, combine rice, 1¼ cups water (2¼ cups for 4 servings), 1 tsp Tunisian Spice Blend (2 tsp for 4), and a pinch of salt. (You’ll use the rest of the spice blend later.) Bring to a boil, then cover and reduce to a low simmer. Cook until rice is tender, 15-18 minutes. Keep covered off heat until ready to serve.
• While rice cooks, mince parsley. Zest and quarter lemon. Halve jalapeño, removing ribs and seeds for less heat; mince jalapeño. Trim green beans if necessary.
• In a small bowl, combine parsley, 1½ TBSP olive oil (3 TBSP for 4 servings), ¼ tsp garlic powder (½ tsp for 4), salt, and pepper. (You’ll use the rest of the garlic powder in the next step.) • Stir in lemon juice to taste and as much jalapeño as you like.
• Toss green beans on a baking sheet with a drizzle of oil, remaining garlic powder, salt, and pepper. • Roast on top rack until browned and tender, 12-15 minutes.
• Meanwhile, pat tilapia* dry with paper towels; season all over with remaining Tunisian Spice Blend, salt, and pepper. • Heat a drizzle of oil in a large, preferably nonstick, pan over medium-high heat. Add tilapia and cook until browned and cooked through, 4-6 minutes per side. • Remove pan from heat.
• Fluff rice with a fork; stir in raisins, lemon zest, and 1 TBSP butter (2 TBSP for 4 servings) until combined. Season with salt and pepper to taste. • Divide tilapia, green beans, and rice between plates. Spoon chermoula over tilapia and serve with any remaining lemon wedges on the side.
Tilapia is fully cooked when internal temperature reaches 145°.
