  1. 1

    Bake the Fries

    Cut potatoes into ½" fries. Pat dry. Place fries on prepared baking sheet and toss with 1 Tbsp. olive oil and half the Chesapeake seasoning (reserve remaining for baked fries). Massage oil and seasoning into fries. Spread into a single layer and bake in hot oven until tender, 18-20 minutes. Carefully, flip fries. Bake again until golden brown, 12-15 minutes. Season baked fries with remaining Chesapeake seasoning. While fries bake, prepare slaw.

    Prepare the Slaw

    In a mixing bowl, combine slaw mix, apple cider vinegar, dressing, and a pinch of salt. Set aside.

  3. 3

    Prepare the Fish

    Pat tilapia dry, and season both sides with blackening seasoning and a pinch of salt and pepper. Place cornmeal on a plate. Lay tilapia on cornmeal and flip until coated completely, pressing gently to adhere. Place coated tilapia on another plate.
