    1 lbs. tilapia fillets, thawed if frozen
    Hy-Vee salt
    1 (5.3-oz.) container Hy-Vee plain Greek yogurt

    Things To Grab

    • Metal cooling rack
    • Hy-Vee nonstick cooking spray
    • Large baking sheet
    • Small bowl
    • Meat thermometer
    • Blender


    1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a metal cooling rack with nonstick cooking spray and place over a large baking sheet. Set aside.

    2. In a small bowl, whisk together cornmeal, cumin, and coriander; set aside.

    3. Season tilapia filets on both sides with kosher salt. Cut tilapia into large strips and spray with nonstick spray. Toss the tilapia with the cornmeal mixture, pressing so mixture sticks. Transfer fish onto prepared wire rack. Spray fish with nonstick spray. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until fish is golden brown and reaches an internal temperature of 145 degrees.

    4. While fish is cooking, combine Greek yogurt, cilantro, garlic, lime zest, and street taco sauce in a blender. Blend until smooth. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

    5. Once fish has finished cooking, place 1 to 2 strips of tilapia on top of corn tortillas. Top with corn salsa, shredded cabbage, hatch pepper crema, and garnish with cilantro, if desired. Fold tortillas in half and serve immediately.

      Hyvee Culinary Expert Tip
      Looking for a charred street taco flavor? Heat a skillet over high heat and add corn tortillas. Cook 30 seconds per side until charred, remove from heat and repeat with remaining tortillas.
