  • 1   pound 
    fresh tilapia or catfish fillets
  • 3   
    limes
  • 1/2  cup 
    mayonnaise
  • 1   teaspoon 
    chili powder
  • 2   tablespoons 
    cooking oil
  • 1/3  cup 
    all-purpose flour
  • 1/2  teaspoon 
    salt

  • 1   cup 
    shredded cabbage
  • 1/2  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.
