  • Place flour in a shallow bowl. Place beaten egg in a second bowl. Combine panko, cumin, salt, and pepper in a third bowl.

  • Heat oil in a deep saucepan over medium heat.

  • While oil is heating, clean and dry tilapia and cut into 2-inch pieces. Dredge in flour, then egg, then panko mixture.

  • Lower fish carefully into the hot oil. Fry until golden brown on both sides, 6 to 8 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate to drain.

  • Fill tortillas with fish. Top with slaw, mayonnaise sauce, and radishes. Serve with lime wedges.

Editor's Note:

We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. Amount will vary depending on cooking time and temperature, ingredient density, and specific type of oil used.
