Tilapia with Tater Tots

This tilapia dish is good for people who are
not so keen on fish... and for people
who enjoy fish- even better!

1 frozen bag of tater tots thawed
4 cloves of smashed garlic
olive oil
1/4 cup diced tomatoes or grape tomatoes halved
6 or so slices of roasted bell peppers diced up
3 scallions chopped up
several olives diced up (optional)
Salt & pepper to taste
2 TBS chopped fresh parsley (you can used dried)
4 or 5 tilapia fillets (fresh or frozen- thawed)

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
Drizzle olive oil in a pan and fry the tilapia until slightly golden.
Take the slightly cooked tilapia out of the pan and put
tilapia into the pan you're going to bake in the oven.
Cook the hash browns with garlic and salt in the same pan you
just used for the fish with olive oil until golden brown.
(use a potato masher or spatula to flatten most of the tater tots)
Add the potato on top and around the tilapia in the oven-safe
dish/pan along with the tomatoes, scallions, parsley, roasted bells.
Bake in the oven until crispy.
( I like to turn it to broil for the last 5 minutes or so.)
