112-16 oz. bag coleslaw mix
1/2 - 2/3 cup your favorite coleslaw dressing, or as desired
1/3 cup fresh chopped cilantro, or to taste
Season the tilapia fillets with Creole seasoning to taste. In a large sauté pan over medium high heat, add a small amount of oil. When the oil is hot, add the prepared and seasoned fillets; sauté 3-4 minutes on each side, until golden brown and fillets flake easily with a fork at the center of each one. The tilapia can also be cooked in a 375 degree F. oven or a 350 degree F. air fryer for 8-10 minutes.
Place the salsa ingredients in a mixing bowl and toss gently with the desired amount of coleslaw dressing to combine.
In a large skillet over medium high heat, place the tortillas, one at a time, into the pan, browning them on each side, if desired.
To serve the fish tacos, fill the warm tortillas with the desired amount of the prepared creamy salsa, then add the warm fish fillets on top. Garnish with chopped cilantro to taste and serve at once.
