From the Test Kitchen

For this comforting, seasonal dish, we’re making a delightfully rich, nutty sauce of browned butter, crunchy almonds, and juicy grapes to give seared tilapia fillets a sophisticated lift. It all comes together over a simple, hearty bed of farro mixed with sautéed garlic and kale.

This recipe was created in partnership with the wellness experts at WW. To learn more about WW and SmartPoints® visit ww.com

tips & techniques
Cook the farro:
1 Cook the farro:

Fill a medium pot 3/4 of the way up with salted water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, add the farro and cook, uncovered, 18 to 20 minutes, or until tender. Turn off the heat. Drain thoroughly and return to the pot. Cover to keep warm. 

Prepare the ingredients:
2 Prepare the ingredients:

Meanwhile, wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. Separate the kale leaves from the stems; discard the stems, then roughly chop the leaves. Combine in a bowl. Remove and discard any stems from the grapes; halve the grapes. 

Cook the kale:
3 Cook the kale:

In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the prepared garlic and kale; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 2 to 3 minutes, or until the kale is slightly wilted. Add half the vinegar (carefully, as the liquid may splatter) and 1/4 cup of water; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes, or until the kale is wilted and the liquid has cooked off. Transfer to a bowl and cover with foil to keep warm. Wipe out the pan.

Cook the fish:
4 Cook the fish:

Pat the fish dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper on both sides. In the same pan, heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned fish and cook 3 to 4 minutes per side, or until lightly browned and cooked through. Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer to a plate. 

Make the pan sauce:
5 Make the pan sauce:

In the pan of reserved fond, heat the butter on medium-high until melted. Once melted, cook, stirring constantly, 2 to 3 minutes, or until the foam subsides and the butter is fragrant (it should smell nutty and toasted). Turn off the heat and stir in the halved grapes, almonds, and remaining vinegar (carefully, as the liquid may splatter). Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. 

Finish the farro & serve your dish:
6 Finish the farro & serve your dish:
