- 1 1/2 tablespoons flour
- 1/2 cup clam juice
- 1 3/4 pounds baking potatoes, peeled and cubed

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
2. Cook bacon in a large skillet over medium heat. When crisp, transfer bacon to a small bowl.
3. Add green onions to the skillet and cook in bacon fat for about 4 minutes to soften, then stir in flour. Cook for 2 minutes, then add clam juice and 2 cups water.
4. When liquids come to a boil, stir in potatoes. Cook for about 15 minutes to soften, then add cream and salt to taste. Measure out 1/2 cup and set aside.
5. Place shrimp in an 8×8-inch baking dish. Top with the creamy potato mixture from the skillet (don’t use the 1/2 cup reserved yet), the tilapia, salt, pepper, and then the last 1/2 cup of reserved creamy potato mixture.
6. Top with crackers and bacon. Bake for about 15 minutes, until tilapia is cooked through. Serve.
