Jerk Tilapia and Baked Sweet Potato Fries

For the tilapia:
  • Jerk seasoning - I used Penzey's
  • Garlic - 1-2 cloves sliced
  • Green onion - sliced thinly
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
For the sweet potato fries:
  • Paprika
  • Cayenne pepper
  • Oregano
  • Vegetable oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
An easy everyday sort of meal.  This is my first posted recipe so be gentle.

For the tilapia:
  1. Sprinkle both sides of the fish liberally with the jerk seasoning, salt and pepper.
  2. In a pan on medium-high heat, add olive oil and briefly saute garlic.
  3. Add tilapia and cook for 3-4 minutes per side.  I like to put a few of those garlic slices on top while cooking.
  4. When done, sprinkle green onion on top and serve.
For the sweet potato fries:
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees (220 degrees celsius).
  2. Slice the sweet potato into thick slices.
  3. Add them to a ziploc bag with all the other ingredients and shake to coat.
  4. Add potatoes to a roasting pan or baking sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes.
  5. Flip the potatoes over and bake for another 15-20 minutes.
  6. I sprinkled with a little more kosher salt when done though it isn't necessary.
