From the Test Kitchen

Chefs! We’re bringing you a series of recipes designed with ease of cooking and cleanup in mind, but without sacrificing the incredible flavors you’ve come to expect from a classic Blue Apron meal. In this Japanese-style dish, flaky tilapia fillets get deep, bold flavor from a coating of vibrant togarashi—a staple of the cuisine that highlights poppy seeds, dried orange peel, and more. For cooling contrast, we’re topping it with crisp marinated vegetables, then drizzling it all with an irresistible combo of creamy mayo and citrusy ponzu sauce.

Cook 3 to 5 minutes on the first side, or until lightly browned. Flip and cook 2 to 4 minutes, or until browned and cooked through.* Turn off the heat. Serve the cooked rice topped with the cooked fish and marinated vegetables (including any liquid). Drizzle with the ponzu mayo and garnish with the remaining togarashi. Enjoy!
