Tilapia & Crockpot Lemon Garlic Mashed Potatoes – An incredibly easy and healthy meal that’s no fuss or mess and baked to perfection! Paired perfectly with fresh lemon and garlic flavors! The mashed potatoes can be made with yellow or red potatoes!
I have always loved seafood and fish ever since I was a little girl. We used to have it once or even twice a week sometimes. Even after I got married a couple of years ago, we still had it once or twice a week and then we stopped having it. I am not sure why exactly, but I can assume life just got a little hectic. So one of my goals for this year, 2016, is to get back into the routine of having some fish or seafood at least once a week.
When serving tilapia or any fish, you typically see fresh vegetables or even french fries depending on the how it is prepared. I thought it would be a very good idea to serve mashed, not whipped, potatoes with it. The lemon, pepper, and herb flavors in the tilapia paired perfectly with the lemon and garlic in the mashed potatoes. It made a very quick and comforting food in no time!
If you have ever made mashed potatoes in your crockpot before, you already know how incredibly easy it is to make crockpot mashed potatoes!
