4 medium corn or flour tortillas

2 teaspoons olive oil

3 boneless tilapia filets, fresh or thawed if frozen

cup panko bread crumbs

Lemon pepper

Southwestern seasoning

Sea salt



Shredded lettuce

Shredded Mexican or mild cheddar cheese

Chopped tomato

Corn-black bean medley

Sliced black olives

Sour cream


Have tortillas on plates, ready to be heated later and filled.

In large skillet, heat 2 teaspoons olive oil. Add tilapia filets and cook, without moving, for about 2 minutes. Flip and season to taste with sea salt, lemon pepper and southwestern seasoning. Top with half the panko and cook another 2 minutes.

Flip to the other side and season with sea salt, lemon pepper and southwestern seasoning. Top with the remaining panko and cook for another 2 to 3 minutes on each side. The fish will be done when it is firm and white in color. The fish should flake apart easily. Do not overcook. Remove from pan and cut into strips.

In the skillet heat the tortillas for about 30 seconds on each side and return to plates. Evenly distribute the tilapia strips, sprinkle with cheese and top with desired garnishes.

Serves four.
