Tonights Dinner! Almond Crusted Tilapia and Sweet Potato Fries

Mmmmmm. First off, let me just say, I was totally watching Madagascar while I was making/eating dinner...and that instantly made it all that much better(not like it wasnt great to begin with haha) Anyways, tonight, after that lovely total arm workout, I was really craving some fish, not sure why, but I was. So tonights dinner was almond crusted tilapia with asparagus and sweet potato fries. I rarely eat a full 'meal' in one sitting, normally, I probably would have eaten the fish, and then a little later had some sweet potato fries, and then have asparagus. It was different eating a meal all at once haha but it sure was yummy! I was surprised at how much I liked the fish like that, this was the first time I tried cooking it like that. For the 'breading' on the fish, use enough ingredients for the amount of fish youre cooking. Since I only had one piece of fish I didnt make enough to really even measure.

Almond Crusted Tilapia
  • Almonds, crushed(I used about 1/4 cup)
  • Bread crumbs(I used a spoonful)
  • Parmesan Cheese(I used a spoonful)
  • Dijon Mustard(enough to cover both sides of the fish)
Combine the crushed almonds, the bread crumbs and the parmesan cheese in a bowl. Cover both sides of the fish with the dijon mustard. Place the fish in the bowl of 'breading' and coat both sides. Cook in a heated, greased pan until the fish is done.

Sweet Potato Fries
  • Sweet potato, washed but not peeled
  • Olive Oil
  • Seasoned Salt
  • Pepper
Preheat oven to 400. Cut up the sweet potato into fries. Coat with olive oil(1-2 tbsp is usually enough, I put the fries in a covered container, add the oil and then shake up the container). Place the fries in a baking pan covered with aluminum foil. Sprinkle with seasoned salt and pepper. Cook about 20-30 minutes or until the fries are not hard anymore and can be poked easily with a fork.
