From the Test Kitchen

Flaky tilapia fillets—dusted with a blend of spices like paprika, ground mustard, and cayenne pepper—are sandwiched between crusty, oven-toasted baguettes and creamy rémoulade (a rich combination of mayonnaise, capers, garlic, and more). A simple side of roasted broccoli is brightened with sweet piquante peppers and just a touch of tangy vinegar.

Prepare the ingredients
1 Prepare the ingredients

Preheat the oven to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut off and discard the bottom ½ inch of the broccoli stem; cut the broccoli into small florets. Roughly chop the peppers. Roughly chop the capers. Peel 1 clove of garlic; using a zester or the small side of a box grater, finely grate into a paste. Halve the baguettes. Cut off and discard the root end of the lettuce; halve lengthwise, then separate the leaves. Halve the pickle chips.

Roast & dress the broccoli
2 Roast & dress the broccoli

Line a sheet pan with foil. Place the broccoli florets on the foil. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper; toss to coat. Arrange in an even layer. Roast 14 to 16 minutes, or until browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Transfer to a large bowl. Add the chopped peppers, half the vinegar, and a drizzle of olive oil. Toss to coat. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.

Add the seasoned fish. Cook 3 to 4 minutes per side (if the pan seems dry, add a drizzle of olive oil before flipping), or until browned and cooked through.* Transfer to a cutting board and carefully halve each fillet lengthwise.

*An instant-read thermometer should register 145°F.
