Remove from the grill and set aside.
Mixed Seafood Dip
While the tater tots are grilling, make the dip.
Heat the oven to 375 degrees and spray the dish with non stick spray.
Drain the mixed seafood from the butter and add to a bowl. Add cream cheese, mayonnaise, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, green onions and half of the cheeses. Stir well to combine.
Add the dip to small baking dish and then top with the rest of the cheeses and bake for about 20-25 minutes or until golden brown and bubbling on top.
Grilled Tater Tots
Spray a disposable aluminum pan with nonstick spray and add the tater tots. Make sure there is just a single layer of the potatoes.
Grill the tater tots on direct heat for about 20 minutes, stirring after 10 to make sure they are evenly toasty.
Remove the tater tots from the grill and make individual piles of mounds of tater tot. Add a scoop or two of the Mixed Seafood Dip to the top of the grilled tater tots and drizzle with remoulade sauce to serve.
Nutritional Value: This will vary depending on the seafood and cheese you use. No Over Crowding Tots: Don't over crowd the aluminum pan or the tots will steam rather than crisp up. They don't get too crispy but you do want a little bit of crunch.Options: This recipe is so flexible if you are thinking of ideas for loading up your tater tots. Are you thinking Tater Tot Bar for your next block party? Top those with Beer Cheese Dip, Smoked Salmon Dip or Beer Corn Crack Dip.Meal Prep: Consider making the seafood dip early so when it is time to grill the tots it is a 20 minute dish. Storage: Just about three days in the refrigerator in a sealed container for the dip alone. Not Freezer Friendly: Don't put in freezer as the seafood dip separates. Remoulade Sauce: We purchased our sauce at the seafood department at Wegmans. Check your grocery store or make your own. Use sparingly as it does taste a little salty. Try a little bit first and then add as you like.
