Wendy's life-changing fish tacos

Here's the recipe:

Fish Tacos

3-4 lbs. tilapia
1 head red cabbage sliced thin
1 lb. (or so) shredded monterey jack cheese
corn tortillas

Cook sliced cabbage in about 3 tbsp. of canola oil until very limp and darkish in color.

Cook tilapia in about 1/4 cup canola oil and 1-2 tbsp. butter. Sprinkle with 1-3 tbsp. cajun seasoning (I used 2).

In a bowl mix 1 cup sugar and the juice from 4 limes until sugar is dissolved. Pour more than half of sugar/lime mixture over tilapia, and pour the remainder on the cooking cabbage. Stir both tilapia and cabbage. The tilapia will eventually break up into bits. This is fine.

Sprinkle about a teaspoon of salt on cooked cabbage and stir well.

When the tilapia and cabbage are both cooked well, serve immediately.

Grab a corn tortilla and spoon a bit of tilapia on it. Add cabbage and monterrey jack cheese on top. Squeeze lime juice on top, if desired.

She says this makes A LOT of tacos.

{I'm not sure what that picture is all about. I just thought it was funny someone had a fish taco bracelet.}
