The pretzel brings it here, coating the tilapia with a crunch that's not to beat amongst all the lettuces, nuts, and tortilla bowls in the world. And what goes well with crunchy pretzel? Mustard of course! It's like a fish and chips out of a German beer hall… culture mixing at its finest.

If using mahi-mahi, pat dry and halve widthwise into six pieces. Season all over with seasoning blend. Follow same instructions as tilapia in Steps 3 and 4, cooking until mahi-mahi reaches minimum internal temperature, 3-4 minutes.
If using chicken breasts, pat dry and cut into 3/4" strips. Season all over with seasoning blend. Follow same instructions as tilapia in Steps 3 and 4, cooking until chicken reaches minimum internal temperature, degrees, 5-8 minutes.
If using shrimp, pat dry and season all over with seasoning blend. Follow same instructions as tilapia in Steps 3 and 4, cooking until shrimp reaches minimum internal temperature, degrees, 2-3 minutes per side.
Roast the Butternut Squash
Halve any large butternut squash pieces to roughly match smaller pieces.
Place butternut squash on prepared baking sheet and toss with 1 tsp. olive oil, ¼ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper. Massage oil and seasoning into squash.
Spread into a single layer and roast in hot oven until tender, 18-20 minutes.
While butternut squash roasts, prepare fish.
Prepare the Fish
Finely crush pretzels until consistency of breadcrumbs. For best results, place in a plastic bag and crush with a heavy object.
Pat tilapia dry. Halve tilapia lengthwise into four pieces total. Season all over with seasoning blend.
Coat the Fish
Add canola oil to a medium non-stick pan and place over medium heat. Heat oil, 5 minutes.
While oil heats, combine tempura mix, ¼ cup water, and a pinch of salt and pepper in a mixing bowl. Stir until a thin batter forms, like pancake batter. If too thick, add additional water, 1 Tbsp. at a time, until desired consistency is reached.
Working in batches, dip tilapia pieces in batter, coating completely. Place tilapia pieces on a plate and top with pretzel on one side, pressing gently to adhere.
Fry the Fish
Line a plate with a paper towel.
Test oil temperature by adding a pinch of tempura 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.
Working in batches if necessary, carefully add tilapia to hot oil and fry until golden all over and fish reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 3-4 minutes per side.
Gently transfer fish to towel-lined plate.
