600 Calories Or Less
All of these delicious recipes come in at 600 calories or less per serving, ideal for those who choose to monitor their caloric intake, without sacrificing flavor. The US Food & Drug Administration recommends a 2000 calorie daily intake for the general population.

Carb Conscious
Our Carb Conscious recipes provide a balanced approach to carbohydrate consumption by replacing refined carbohydrates from sources like white flour, rice, and cane sugar with high-fiber foods like fresh vegetables, fruits, and whole grains. Our Carb Conscious recipes have 42g or less of net carbohydrates (total carbohydrates minus dietary fiber) per serving, a 25% reduction in net carbs compared to the average Blue Apron recipe served in 2019. Due to the natural variation in size of and contribution of produce in our recipes, some recipes can be badged as Carb Conscious at 45g or less net carbs per serving.
Mediterranean Diet
Our Mediterranean recipes are inspired by the Mediterranean Diet, a healthy eating plan recommended in the Dietary Guidelines for Americans published jointly every five years by the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the Department of Health & Human Services (DHHS). This eating plan highlights the flavors and cooking styles from countries along the Mediterranean Sea, including those in Europe, the Middle East, and North Africa. These recipes showcase a wide variety of vegetables, fruits, and whole grains, as well as lean proteins and moderate portions of dairy.
Plant-Forward
Our Plant-Forward recipes are designed by our chefs to help support a flexible diet that emphasizes plant-based foods like fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, beans and other legumes like lentils and soy foods, and includes occasional, moderate portions of meat, poultry, fish, and seafood.

A recipe with this badge features non-starchy, fibrous vegetables with a limit on calories, total carbohydrates, saturated fat, added sugar and sodium.

You’ll dress these delicious, breaded fish sandwiches with a creamy, homemade tartar sauce. Though tartar sauce has become a mainstay of American cuisine, its origins are firmly planted in the high cuisine of France in the 19th Century. The sauce is named after the Tartars of the Eurasian Steppe, though the sauce has nothing to do with the region nor did it originate there. In the era of haute cuisine in France, chefs often chose “exotic” names to stir the imaginations of their customers. And though “sauce tartare” is actually just French, it’s still incredibly delicious.

tips & techniques
Prepare the ingredients:
1 Prepare the ingredients:

Wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel and mince the shallot. In a small bowl, combine half the minced shallot, vinegar and sugar. In a medium bowl, whisk together the mustard and ¼ cup of water until smooth. Cut out and discard the core of the cabbage; thinly slice the leaves. Place the cabbage in a large bowl and toss with 1 tablespoon of salt. Pick the parsley leaves off the stems; discard the stems and finely chop the leaves. Roughly chop the capers. Split the buns. Halve the fish fillets horizontally.

Make the coleslaw:
2 Make the coleslaw:

To the bowl of salted cabbage, add the shallot-vinegar mixture, half the parsley, 1 tablespoon of the mustard-water mixture, 1 tablespoon of mayonnaise and as much of the Tabasco sauce as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be. Season with salt and pepper to taste; toss to combine.

Make the tartar sauce:
3 Make the tartar sauce:

In a medium bowl combine the capers, 1 teaspoon of the mustard-water mixture and the remaining mayonnaise, minced shallot and parsley; season with salt and pepper to taste. Stir until fully incorporated.

Coat the fish:
4 Coat the fish:

Season both sides of the fish pieces with salt and pepper. Place the breadcrumbs in a bowl. Working one at a time, dip the seasoned fish pieces into the remaining mustard-water mixture (letting any excess drip off), then completely coat with the breadcrumbs (shaking off any excess). Transfer to a plate. Repeat with the remaining fish pieces.

Cook the fish:
5 Cook the fish:

In a medium pan (nonstick if you have one), heat a thin layer of oil on medium-high until hot. Add the coated fish and cook 3 to 4 minutes per side, or until golden brown and cooked through. Transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate; season immediately with salt and pepper. Carefully discard the oil. Wipe out the pan.

Toast the buns & finish your dish:
6 Toast the buns & finish your dish:

In the same pan used to cook the fish, heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the buns, cut side down, and toast 1 to 2 minutes, or until golden brown; transfer to a work surface. Spread the cut sides of the toasted buns with the tartar sauce. Stack 2 pieces of the cooked fish on the bun bottoms. Top with some of the coleslaw. Serve with the extra coleslaw, tartar sauce and the remaining Tabasco sauce on the side. Enjoy!
