Hollow out top and bottom halves of bread, leaving a 1/2-inch-thick shell. Place bread, cut sides up, on a baking sheet, and broil for 1 1/2 minutes or until toasted.
Place mayonnaise, yogurt, vinegar, and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a medium bowl; stir with a whisk. Add coleslaw, jicama, apple, and jalapeño; toss well to coat.
Place cornmeal and black pepper in a dish. Place milk in a dish. Dip fish in milk. Dredge in cornmeal mixture; shake off excess breading. Sprinkle with remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt.
Heat a skillet over medium-high heat. Add olive oil; swirl to coat. Add fish; cook 3 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness. Place 1 fillet in each roll; divide coleslaw among sandwiches.

Yummy fish sandwich. Slaw is good with it. I agree that the fish was bland. I added hot house to mine and my husband used chipotle mayo on his. I would definitely make again with adding some cayenne to the cornmeal to take it up a notch.
This was really good. I would recommend making the slaw ahead of time and letting it sit, mine tasted much better after I let it chill for an hour than straight after making it. A good roll can make or break this. The slaw was good with apple and jicama, nice change.
My whole family loved it and would eat it again.
I liked the sandwich, but felt something was missing. The coleslaw is delicious and I used catfish for more flavor than tilapia. However, the sandwich was bland. I would make the recipe again but would add some tartar sauce as a spread for the sandwich and some hot sauce to the milk.
The jicama slaw was delicious, combination of the apple and jicama took it up a notch. Tilapia need a bit more of a kick, would suggest adding some hot sauce to the milk or spicing up the fish before dredging. I couldn't find the rolls recommended, but opted to toast up some sourdough bread. The crusty bread held up well. Definitely a recipe to keep in the books with some spicy additions!
