Tilapia Tales

I made a delicious dinner tonight...
An open face tilapia sandwich topped with a lettuce slaw + sweet potato fries.  Incredibly easy to make...the meal took me about 20 minutes total.  Here's what I did...

Ingredients - for 2 people:
2 sweet potatoes
2 pcs of fresh tilapia
1 bag shredded lettuce
1 tsp dijon mustard
2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
1 hero type baguette
salt + pepper

Preheat the oven to 450.  Scrub the dirt off the sweet potatoes and dry well.  Slice into wedges and place onto a baking sheet.  Drizzle EVOO all over and hit the potatoes with a couple good pinches of salt and pepper.  Bake for about 20 minutes or until golden.

In a medium size bowl add your mustard, vinegar, good pinch of salt + pepper and 1/2 cup EVOO and whisk together.  Add the lettuce and mix well.

On a non stick skillet heat a tablespoon of EVOO over medium high heat.  Add salt + pepper to the tilapia and place into the hot skillet.  Saute for 6 to 8 minutes turing once.
Slice the baguette in half and add to the oven to toast up (only needs a few minutes so keep your eye on this).  Top the baguette with the lettuce mixture, tilapia and add a sliced up pickle on the side.  Pile on the fries next to your sammie and enjoy!
