    Make the mustard seed rice
    1 Make the mustard seed rice

    In a small pot, heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the mustard seeds and rice. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until lightly toasted (be careful, as the mustard seeds may pop as they toast). Add a big pinch of salt and 1 cup of water (carefully, as the liquid may splatter); stir to combine. 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. Cover to keep warm.

    2 Prepare the ingredients & start the sauce

    Meanwhile, wash and dry the fresh produce. Pull off and discard the tough string that runs the length of each snap pea pod. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. Roughly chop the cashews. Cut off and discard the stem of the pepper. Halve lengthwise; remove the ribs and seeds, then thinly slice crosswise. Thoroughly wash your hands immediately after handling. In a bowl, combine the mango chutney, 1/4 cup of water, and as much of the red pepper flakes as you'd like, depending on how spicy you'd like the dish to be.

    3 Cook the vegetables

    In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the prepared peas and sliced pepper in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 2 to 3 minutes, or until lightly browned. Add the chopped garlic; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 1 to 2 minutes, or until softened. Add the verjus. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until the vegetables are softened and the liquid has cooked off. Transfer to a bowl and cover with foil to keep warm. Rinse and wipe out the pan.

    4 Cook the tilapia

    Pat the tilapia dry with paper towels. Season on both sides with salt, pepper, and enough of the curry powder to coat (you may have extra). In the same pan, heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned tilapia. Cook 3 to 4 minutes per side, or until browned and cooked through.* Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer to a plate.

    *The USDA recommends a minimum safe cooking temperature of 145°F for fish.

    5 Finish the sauce & serve your dish

    To the pan of reserved fond, add the sauce (carefully, as the liquid may splatter). Cook, stirring frequently and scraping up any fond, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until slightly thickened. Turn off the heat; stir in the butter until melted and combined. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Serve the cooked tilapia with the mustard seed rice and cooked vegetables. Top the tilapia with the finished sauce. Garnish with the chopped cashews. Enjoy!
