Lemon Dill Fish, Baked Chips, and Tartar Sauce

This is a three for one recipe post! I figured they kinda go together. I don’t care for store-bought tartar sauce (at all) and the one my mom used to make was good, but still not quite what I wanted. So I experimented the other night and I came up with what I think is the perfect fish companion! The lemon zest really brightens the flavors and makes it all work.
We love baked fries, they’re so simple and so much better than they’re fried versions, in my opinion.
And a great side dish for so many things.  Have fun trying them with different seasonings too.  You’d be surprised how adjusting the seasonings will change them.
And the fish is simple, easy, AND delicious.  (You know how I love those three words together!)
And using Tilapia makes it much more affordable than halibut or cod or such.
I hope you try all three of these and your family enjoys them as much as we do!

Lemon Dill Fish
1/2 cup flour
1/4 cup bread crumbs
1 tsp lemon zest
1 tsp dried dill weed
1/4 tsp salt
1 egg
4 tilapia fillets, about 1/2 inch thick
2 T oil
Stir together flour, bread crumbs, lemon zest, dill, and salt until well blended.
Beat egg in another dish.
Dip fish in egg, then flour mixture. Heat oil over medium heat. Cook fish, about 3 or 5 minutes per side.
Baked Chips
salt and pepper
Cut potatoes in half lengthwise, then each half into 4 wedges.
Drizzle with oil, salt, and pepper, toss to coat.
Bakt at 400 degrees for 30-35 minutes. Turn halfway through.
Tartar Sauce
1 cup mayonaise
1/4 cup finely chopped pickles
1 tsp pickle juice
1 T dried onion (soaked for a few minutes in 1 T water) or 2-3 T chopped onion
1/2 tsp seasoned salt (more to taste)
