  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup hoisin sauce
  • 2 Tablespoons sweet pickle relish
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 Tablespoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground white pepper
  • 1 pound tilapia fillets cut into 4-by-1-inch strips
  • 2 large eggs beaten
  • 3 cups panko bread crumbs
  • 3 cups vegetable oil for frying
  • 12 corn tortillas warmed


  • Shredded green cabbage, lettuce leaves, cilantro and sliced scallions, for serving (I added a sliver of avocado and of course some cilantro.)
  • In a bowl, whisk the mayonnaise with the hoisin sauce, pickle relish and lemon juice.
  • In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the flour, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and white pepper. Seal the bag and shake. Add the fish and shake to coat.
  • Put the eggs and panko in separate shallow bowls. Dip the fish in the egg and then in the panko. Transfer the fish to a wax paper–lined platter.
  • In a large, deep skillet, heat the oil to 350°. Add half of the fish and fry over moderate heat, turning once, until golden, about 3 minutes. Drain the fish on a paper towel–lined platter. Repeat with the remaining fish. Serve the fish in the tortillas, passing the hoisin mayonnaise, cabbage, lettuce, cilantro and scallions for serving.
