Original recipe yields 2 sandwiches

Directions

  1. Stir together the mayonnaise, onion, tomato, relish, and piri piri in a small bowl. Season to taste with salt and pepper, and set aside.
  2. Season the tilapia fillets on both sides with the seafood seasoning and garlic powder. Melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat. Cook the tilapia fillets until they are golden brown on both sides and no longer translucent in the center, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Place two slices of pepperjack cheese on top of each fillet, cover the skillet, and cook until the cheese has melted.
  3. Place each tilapia fillet onto a slice of toasted bread, spread with the reserved sauce, then top with the remaining slices of bread.

I didn't make the mayo sauce, and I didn't eat it as a sandwich, but I did season the tilapia fillets with Old Bay and garlic and pan fried them in butter. I poured the butter from the skillet over the fish when I served it. It didn't need any extra sauce as far as I was concerned...delicious as is.

I love making this recipe using soft tortillas and eating as fish tacos.

I made this tonight using some frozen tilapia purchased at a local store. The store packages each fish fillet individually, making this a fantastically easy recipe! I don't really like spicy, so I did not make the sauce. I did use the tomato and mayonnaise on the bread, however. The seasoning for the fish was perfect; I added some salt as well. I don't think it would reheat well, so it will remain a quick dinner or weekend lunch meal. I served it with vegetarian vegetable soup and pickle spears. Fresh fruit for dessert.
