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. The 600 calorie cap equates to 30% of total 2000 calories per day based on 3 meals per day with 200 calories remaining for snack or beverage.
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.

From the Test Kitchen

In the mid-20th Century, America fell in love with a salad that was both elegant and incredibly easy to prepare: the wedge. It features large wedges of iceberg lettuce, whose broad, sturdy, deliciously crisp leaves create a perfect base for varied toppings. We’re using juicy cherry tomatoes, oniony chives and a drizzle of peppery vinaigrette. It’s the ultimate refreshing side for sandwiches of panko-breaded, pan-fried cod and creamy tartar sauce (a mayo-based condiment traditionally served with fish).

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

Wash and dry the fresh produce. Halve the buns. Roughly chop the capers. Cut the chives into ¼-inch pieces. Remove and discard the outer layer of the lettuce head. Quarter the lettuce head, keeping each wedge intact; remove and discard the core. Separate 4 large leaves from the wedges. Quarter the tomatoes. Peel and mince the shallot to get 2 tablespoons of minced shallot (you may have extra); place in a bowl with the vinegar.

Bread the cod:
2 Bread the cod:

In a medium bowl, combine half the mustard and 2 tablespoons of water; season with salt and pepper to taste. Place the spice blend and breadcrumbs in 2 separate medium bowls; season each with salt and pepper. Pat the cod fillets dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper on both sides. Working 1 at a time, thoroughly coat the seasoned fillets in the spice blend (shaking off any excess), then dip in the mustard-water mixture (letting the excess drip off), then coat in the breadcrumbs (pressing to adhere). Place the breaded fillets on a plate.

Cook the cod:
3 Cook the cod:

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

Make the tartar sauce:
4 Make the tartar sauce:

While the cod cooks, in a bowl, combine the capers, mayonnaise, half the chives, half the shallot-vinegar mixture and half the remaining mustard. Stir to thoroughly combine; season with salt and pepper to taste.

Make the vinaigrette & salad:
5 Make the vinaigrette & salad:

While the cod continues to cook, stir the remaining mustard into the remaining shallot-vinegar mixture; season with salt and pepper to taste. Slowly whisk in 2 tablespoons of olive oil until well combined. Place the lettuce wedges on a serving dish, cut sides up; season with salt and pepper. Top with the tomatoes and remaining chives. Drizzle with as much of the vinaigrette as you’d like (you may have extra); season with salt and pepper.

Finish & serve your dish:
6 Finish & serve your dish:

In the pan used to cook the cod, heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the buns, cut sides down. Toast 1 to 2 minutes, or until golden brown. Transfer to a clean, dry work surface. Place a lettuce leaf and a cooked cod fillet on each toasted bun bottom. Top with a spoonful of the tartar sauce and a toasted bun top. Transfer to a serving dish. Serve with the salad and remaining tartar sauce on the side. Enjoy!
