    From the Test Kitchen

    We're calling on the bold, warming flavors of shawarma (a Middle Eastern street-food favorite) by spicing our flaky tilapia fillets with a traditional blend of coriander, cumin, turmeric, and more. It's perfectly accompanied by a savory-sweet mix of oregano-roasted potatoes and kohlrabi, currants, and fresh arugula, plus a creamy layer of lemon tahini served underneath.

    tips & techniques
    Prepare the ingredients
    1 Prepare the ingredients

    Place an oven rack in the center of the oven; preheat to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut the potatoes into 1/2-inch rounds. Cut off the top and bottom of the kohlrabi to create a flat surface; using a knife, cut down along the curve of the kohlrabi to remove the green skin. Halve lengthwise; if present, remove the core, then cut crosswise into 1/4-inch pieces. Place the currants in a bowl; cover with hot water. Set aside to rehydrate at least 10 minutes. Roughly chop the pistachios. Quarter and deseed the lemon. In a bowl, combine the tahini, the juice of 2 lemon wedges, and 1 tablespoon of water. Season with salt and pepper.  

    Roast the potatoes & kohlrabi
    2 Roast the potatoes & kohlrabi

    Place the potato rounds and kohlrabi pieces on a sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil; season with salt, pepper, and the oregano. Toss to coat and arrange in an even layer. Roast 19 to 21 minutes, or until browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven.

    Cook the fish
    3 Cook the fish

    Once the vegetables have roasted about 10 minutes, pat the fish dry with paper towels. Season on both sides with salt, pepper, and enough of the spice blend to coat (you may have extra). In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned fish. Cook 3 to 4 minutes per side, or until browned and cooked through.* Turn off the heat. 

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

    Just before serving, in a large bowl, combine the arugula, roasted potatoes and kohlrabi, rehydrated currants (draining before adding), and the juice of the remaining lemon wedges. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper; toss to combine. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Divide the lemon tahini between two dishes; spread into an even layer. Serve the lemon tahini topped with the salad and cooked fish. Garnish with the chopped pistachios and peppers. Enjoy!
