Serves 4 | Prep Time | Cook Time


1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup non-fat yogurt
2 tablespoons chili sauce
2 tablespoons hot picante sauce (I use Pace)

4 tilapia fillets
1/4 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 large egg, beaten
1-1 1/2 cups panko bread crumbs
4 tablespoons olive oil
2 cups shredded red cabbage
2 tomatoes, chopped
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 avocado, cubed

In a small bowl, combine all of the sauce ingredients, blending well. Cover and refrigerate until needed.

Mix the flour, salt and pepper in a shallow bowl. Place the beaten egg in another shallow bowl and the panko bread crumbs in a third shallow bowl. Dredge each tilapia fillet first in the flour, then in the egg and then in the bread crumbs, making sure to cover completely.

Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in large skillet over medium high heat until hot, but not smoking. Reduce heat to medium and place 2 fish fillets in the hot skillet. Fry fish for about 3 minutes on each side or until the fillets are brown and the fish flakes easily. Repeat for the remaining 2 fillets. Salt fillets as desired.

To serve, place a fillet on a plate, top with 1/2 cup cabbage, 1/4 cup cheese, tomatoes and avocado cubes. Drizzle with sauce.

One of my husband's favorite recipes is fish tacos. We were out of tortillas one day, so I simply piled some fish with our favorite toppings and it turned out beautifully!

This looks and sounds delicious! Thanks! Kathy
