Tilapia Tostadas with Creamy Lime Sauce


1.25 pounds tilapia fillets

6 tablespoons lime juice divided

coarse salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste

1/4 cup vegetable oil divided

6 6-inch corn tortillas

1 cup plain yogurt

1 teaspoon sugar

1/8 teaspoon chili powder

1 avocado pitted, peeled and sliced

3 cups shredded cabbage

1/4 cup fresh cilantro chopped

1 cup Fresh Salsa


Rinse fish and place on a plate. Pour half of the lime juice over fish; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cover and chill for 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, pour the oil into a large skillet and heat over medium-high heat. When surface looks rippled, one at a time, place a tortilla into oil and cook, turning once, until crisp, 1 to 2 minutes total. Transfer to paper towels to drain and season with a little salt. Repeat to fry remaining tortillas.
In a small bowl, stir together yogurt, sugar, chili powder, remaining lime juice, and a little salt to taste.
Add a little more oil to the skillet, if needed. When hot, add fish to skillet along with lime juice from the plate; cover, and cook until opaque in the center and flaky (cut to test), about 6-7 minutes. Coarsely chop the fish.
Place a fried tortilla on each plate and layer equally with shredded cabbage, tilapia, yogurt sauce, avocado slices, cilantro leaves, and fresh salsa.
