    From the Test Kitchen

    Chefs! We’re bringing you a series of recipes designed with ease of cooking and cleanup in mind, but without sacrificing the incredible flavors you’ve come to expect from a classic Blue Apron meal. In this hearty bake, poblano pepper and fresh tomatoes create a flavorful bed for spiced tilapia fillets. For a golden brown crust, we’re adding a layer of spiced panko breadcrumbs before baking.

    Baked Honey-Lime Tilapia with Poblano, Tomatoes & Rice
    Title
    • 10 oz Tail-On Shrimp (Peeled & Deveined)
    • ½ cup Long Grain White Rice
    • 4 oz Grape Tomatoes
    • 1 Tbsp Mexican Spice Blend (Ancho Chile Powder, Smoked Paprika, Garlic Powder, Ground Cumin & Dried Mexican Oregano)
    • 2 Scallions
    • 1 Poblano Pepper
    • 1 Lime
    • 1 oz Butter
    • ¼ cup Panko Breadcrumbs
    • 1 Tbsp Honey
    • 2 Tbsps Raw Pepitas
    Prepare the ingredients & make the sauce
    1 Prepare the ingredients & make the sauce

    Remove the honey from the refrigerator to bring to room temperature. Place an oven rack in the center of the oven; preheat to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Thinly slice the scallions, separating the white bottoms and hollow green tops. Halve the lime; squeeze the juice into a bowl. Add the honey (kneading the packet before opening) and 1 tablespoon of olive oil; season with salt and pepper. Whisk to combine. Cut off and discard the stem of the pepper. Halve lengthwise; remove the ribs and seeds, then medium dice. Thoroughly wash your hands immediately after handling.

    Toast the pepitas
    2 Toast the pepitas

    In a small pot, heat 1 teaspoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the pepitas. Cook, stirring constantly, 1 to 3 minutes, or until toasted (be careful, as the pepitas may pop as they toast). Transfer to a plate and immediately season with salt. Wipe out the pot.

    3 Cook & finish the rice

    In the same pot, heat 1 teaspoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the sliced white bottoms of the scallions; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until softened. Add the rice, a big pinch of salt, and 1 cup of water (carefully, as the liquid may splatter). Heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook, without stirring, 13 to 15 minutes, or until the water has been absorbed and the rice is tender. Turn off the heat and fluff with a fork. Stir in the toasted pepitas. Cover to keep warm.

    Meanwhile, place the tomatoes and diced pepper in a baking dish. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat and arrange in an even layer. Bake 5 to 6 minutes, or until slightly softened. Leaving the oven on, remove from the oven.

    Meanwhile, pat the shrimp dry with paper towels; remove the tails. Place in a bowl. Season with salt, pepper, and the remaining spice blend. Stir to coat. Carefully place the seasoned shrimp on top of the partially baked vegetables. Evenly top the shrimp with the breadcrumb topping. Bake 9 to 11 minutes, or until the breadcrumbs are toasted and the shrimp are opaque and cooked through. Remove from the oven. Serve the finished rice topped with the cooked shrimp and vegetables and sauce. Garnish with the sliced green tops of the scallions. Enjoy!
