• 1/2  
    small clove garlic
    Kosher salt
  • 1   
    medium lime
  • 3   tablespoons 
  • 1/4  
    medium head Savoy cabbage, cored and thinly sliced (about 2 cups)
  • 2   
    scallions, thinly sliced
  • 2   tablespoons 
    chopped fresh cilantro leaves
    Freshly ground black pepper

    ground cumin
  • 2  5  ounces 
    tilapia fillets, cut in half lengthwise
  • 1   tablespoon 
    unsalted butter
Chop the garlic, sprinkle it with a pinch of salt, and mash it into a paste with the side of a chef's knife. Finely grate the zest from half of the lime and then juice the whole lime. In a medium bowl, whisk the garlic, lime zest, 1 tablespoon of the juice, and the mayonnaise. Toss in the cabbage, scallions, and cilantro. Season with 1/4 teaspoon salt and several grinds of pepper.
In a small bowl, mix the chili powder, cumin, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and several grinds of pepper. Sprinkle the spice rub all over the tilapia.
Melt the butter in a 10-inch cast-iron or nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the tilapia on both sides until browned and cooked through, about 3 minutes total for the small pieces and 5 minutes total for the large pieces. Transfer to a plate. Toss the slaw and add more lime juice, salt, and pepper to taste. Serve the tilapia with the slaw.
