I found this recipe at, and it’s ready in 15-20 minutes.


  • 1 lb. Tilapia filets
  • 2 Tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 1/4 c. cornmeal
  • 4 tsp. McCormick Chili Powder
  • 1/2 tsp. McCormick Garlic Powder
  • 3/4 tsp. salt

Cilantro Slaw Topping:

  • 2 c. prepared coleslaw (your favorite recipe, or pick some up at the deli in your supermarket)
  • 1/4 c. chopped fresh cilantro

Corn tortillas (8)

Stir chopped cilantro into your coleslaw, and refrigerate until ready to serve.  Mix together cornmeal, salt, chili powder and garlic powder in a shallow dish.

Warm vegetable oil in a large non-stick skillet.  Coat tilapia in seasoning mix.

Add fish to skillet and cook for 3-5 minutes each side, until golden brown and fish flakes easily.  Cut filets in half and serve on a warm corn tortilla.  Top with cilantro slaw.  Serve with rice, Pico de Gallo, or whatever your family enjoys.

Makes 8 tacos (depending in the size of your filets).
