Ingredients

  • 1

    pound fresh tilapia or catfish fillets

  • 3

    limes

  • ½

    cup mayonnaise

  • 1

    teaspoon chili powder

  • 2

    tablespoons cooking oil

  • cup all-purpose flour

  • ½

    teaspoon salt

  • 8 - 6

    inches flour tortillas

  • 1

    cup shredded cabbage

  • ½

    cup shredded carrots (2 small or 1 medium)

  • 1

    jalapeno or serrano pepper, thinly sliced

Directions

1) Rinse fish and pat dry. Cut into 1-inch pieces. 2) For lime sauce, juice two of the limes into a bowl (cut remaining lime into wedges for serving). Stir mayonnaise and chili powder into juice. Transfer 1/3 cup of the sauce to another bowl; toss fish in it. Set aside remaining sauce. 3) In a large skillet heat oil over medium heat. In a shallow dish combine flour and salt. Working with about a third of the fish at a time, toss fish in flour mixture and add to hot oil. Cook for 2 to 4 minutes or until fish flakes, turning to brown evenly and adding additional oil as needed. Drain fish on paper towels. 4) Wrap tortillas in paper towels; heat in microwave for 30 seconds. Top tortillas with fish, cabbage, carrots, and jalapeno. Drizzle with Lime Sauce and serve with lime wedges.
