Because it's sustainably farm-raised and widely available, tilapia is a great option. And since it doesn't have an assertive flavor, it pairs well with a variety of ingredients.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine 1 cup water, 1 tablespoon salt, and sugar in a shallow dish. Add fillets, and let stand 15 minutes. Remove fillets from brine; pat dry. Discard brine. Brush fillets with 1 tablespoon olive oil. Sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper.

Step 2

Preheat broiler.

Step 3

Place fillets on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray; broil 7 minutes or until desired degree of doneness.

Step 4

Combine arugula, frisée, and mint in a large bowl. Combine apple and 1 tablespoon oil; toss well. Add apple and 1/4 teaspoon salt to arugula mixture, and toss gently.

Step 5

Combine remaining 1 tablespoon oil, remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, parsley, and remaining ingredients, stirring with a whisk until blended. Divide arugula mixture evenly among 6 plates; top each serving with 1 fillet. Drizzle about 1 tablespoon sour cream mixture over each serving.

Not the prettiest dish (at least the fish), but it was quick and delicious. My kids loved the tilapia.

I made this tonight and it was delicious. I don't typically like meals I make myself, but I really enjoyed this. Easy to prepare, simple ingredients. I used a kale/spinach mix rather than arugula/frisee, and it worked perfectly. This is definitely in the rotation!

The fish did not look pretty whilst cooking in under the broiler, but boy did it taste delicious! I was srsly freaking out that it would be awful (tried for first time in front of friends) Fresh, tender, juicy, everything you'd want in a fish. The Gala apples added subtle flave and crunch to the meal w/o overpowering the delicate fish and the sauce? Easy and blended all the flavors together. I didnt use frisee. Served with quinoa/barley blend. Don't skip the brine!

This was a really good dinner. I was surprised that the mint and apple went so well. Really easy to prepare and nice and light. Followed the recipe except used spinach instead of arugula.

Just cooked this tonight and it was delicious! I used Cod instead of Tilapia and used Frisee, Arugula and Red Lettuce. I have never used mint in a salad and it really added a nice touch. It was easy, quick and really hit the spot! My husband loved it and we will definitely have it again!
