2 cups shredded cabbage (about 1/4 head)
2 tablespoons prepared chipotle mayonnaise
Salt and pepper
1/2 cup fine cornmeal
2 8-oz. tilapia fillets, sliced lengthwise into 8 1-inch strips
1 teaspoon seafood seasoning (such as Old Bay)
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 avocado, pitted and thinly sliced
8 corn tortillas, warmed
1 lime, cut into wedges


1. In a medium bowl, stir together cabbage and mayonnaise to combine. Taste and season with salt and pepper.

2. Place cornmeal in a shallow bowl. Season fish with salt and pepper and rub with seafood seasoning. Dredge both sides in cornmeal. Warm oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Working in batches if necessary, place fish in a single layer in skillet. Cook, turning as necessary, until exterior is crisp and browned and center is translucent, 3 to 5 minutes total. Remove to a paper towel-lined plate. Repeat with remaining fish, if necessary.

3. Divide coleslaw, fish and avocado among tortillas. Serve with lime wedges.
