Roast the Potatoes
[2 extra tsp olive oil goes where?]
Cut each potato into eight wedges.
Place potato wedges on prepared baking sheet and toss with 2 tsp. olive oil and Cajun seasoning. Massage oil into potatoes.
Spread into a single layer and roast in hot oven until golden brown and tender, 15-20 minutes.
While potatoes roast, prepare ingredients.

Prepare Ingredients and Make Slaw
Halve and juice lime.
Coarsely crush saltine crackers.
Combine slaw mix, sour cream, 1½ tsp. lime juice, ¼ tsp. salt, and ¼ tsp. pepper. Add a pinch of salt and mix well. Set aside. [I wrote it this way to get in Ryan's extra pinch. If he's okay removing it, we can put it elsewhere.]
Pat tilapia dry, and cut lengthwise into two planks.

Prepare the Fish
Add canola oil to a medium non-stick pan and place over medium heat. Let oil heat, at least 5 minutes.
While oil heats, combine tempura mix and ½ cup cold water until a batter the consistency of heavy cream forms. [Ryan had 3-4 oz. ½ cup is 4 oz]. Stir in crushed saltine crackers.
Add tilapia planks to batter and coat completely. Transfer to a plate, letting excess batter drip off.

Fry the Fish
Line a plate with a paper towel.
Test oil temperature by adding a pinch of batter to it. It should sizzle gently. If it browns immediately, turn heat down and let oil cool. If it doesn't brown, increase heat.
Carefully, add fish to hot oil. Fry until fish is golden brown and reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 4-6 minutes per side.
Remove fish to towel-lined plate.
