I love fish & potatoes I wanted to try a new recipe. I found this recipe by doing a Yahoo search for a tilapia recipe. Just type tilapia recipes in Yahoo search bar & click on RecipesForYou.net/FreeRecipes then download the TotalRecipeSearch toolbar. Once downloaded, you can search for tilapia recipes & this recipe will appear. Then searched for mashed potatoes recipe & the recipe will appear. My husband loved both recipes & said both are definetely top recipes I've made. If you don't like tilapia or almonds you can use any fish & nuts you like.
