Author Notes: If a banh mi and a taco had a love child, this would be it. A cornmeal and panko crusted tilapia marries with the banh mi trifecta of jalapenos, pickled daikon/carrots, and cilantro for a southeast inspired version of the fish taco. For more recipes: www.juicypeachdiaries.comTian Lee

Serves: 2

  • 1/2 cup Panko breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 cup Cornmeal
  • 1 Egg (beaten)
  • 1/2 pound Tilapia fillet
  • 2 tablespoons Canola oil
  • 6 Corn & wheat mini tortillas
  • 1/4 cup Jalapenos (thinly sliced)
  • 1/2 cup Pickled shredded daikon & carrots
  • 1/2 cup Sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon Sriracha hot sauce
  1. Cut each tilapia fillet into 3 small pieces (1 fillet should yield 3 tacos)
  2. Crack & beat egg into a mixing bowl. Dip fish pieces into egg wash. Dredge fish into mixture of cornmeal and panko.
  3. Pan fry the fish fillets with 3 tablespoons of canola oil until golden and crunchy. Place onto paper towel to absorb extra oil.
  4. Place tortillas into microwave for 15-20 seconds to warm them. Place fish on top of tortillas. Assemble with garnishes and toppings: sirracha crema, pickled carrots and daikon, cilantro and jalapenos.
