Fish Tacos with Lime Sauce
Ingredients
  • 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
  • 8 6 - 7  inches  flour tortillas
  • 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.
