    From the Test Kitchen

    In this dish, flaky tilapia fillets are coated in herby za'atar, then a sweet and spicy glaze, which we're spooning over the fillets as they sear in the pan. You'll serve the fish over a hearty bed of farro with zucchini and tomatoes, and top it all off with almonds for an added crunch.

    tips & techniques
    Cook the farro
    1 Cook the farro

    Remove the honey from the refrigerator to bring to room temperature. 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.

    2 Prepare the ingredients & make the glaze

    Meanwhile, wash and dry the fresh produce. Halve the zucchini lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise. Halve the tomatoes. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. Roughly chop the peppers. In a bowl, combine the honey (kneading the packet before opening), harissa paste, and 1/4 cup of water.

    Cook the vegetables
    3 Cook the vegetables

    In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the sliced zucchini in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 3 to 4 minutes, or until lightly browned. Add the halved tomatoes and chopped garlic; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until softened. Transfer to a bowl; cover with foil to keep warm. Wipe out the pan.

    Cook & glaze the fish
    4 Cook & glaze the fish

    Pat the fish dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper on both sides. Season only on the skinless side with enough of the za'atar to coat (you may have extra). In the same pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned fish, skin side down. Cook 5 to 7 minutes, or until the skin is browned and crispy. Flip the fish and add the glaze (carefully, as the liquid may splatter). Cook, frequently spooning the glaze over the fish, 1 to 2 minutes, or until the fish is coated and cooked through.* Turn off the heat. 

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

Serve the finished farro topped with the glazed fish (including any glaze from the pan) and tzatziki. Garnish with the chopped peppers and almonds. Enjoy!
