Pan Seared Tilapia with potato salad for less than $2

I love working with left overs and making it fresh and new.

This whole meal was done on a budget because it has become my passion to make beautiful, healthy and delicious meals on a budget and with basic kitchen appliances as not all of us have access to food processors, ovens, ranges, mixers, instant pots etc.

>> the bag of tilapia had about 9-10 cuts of tilapia in it. It’s a 2Ib bag and it cost less than $6.

>> the whole bag of potatoes 🥔 was about $3 dollars

>> the green peppers were 85 cents each.

>> green onions were 98 cents for the bag.

>> the box of cherry 🍒 tomatoes was about $2.33

This whole plate per serving is less than $2.
