1Prepare the Tilapia: Sprinkle both sides of tilapia fillets with salt and black pepper. Combine flour, cumin, and coriander in a shallow dish. Place beaten eggs in a second shallow dish; place crushed tortilla chips in a third shallow dish. Dredge fillets in flour mixture, dip in eggs, and dredge in tortilla chips, pressing to adhere.
2Heat 1 tablespoon of the canola oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high. Place 2 fillets in hot oil; cook until golden brown on bottom, about 4 minutes. Turn fillets, add 1 tablespoon of the oil, and cook until fish flakes easily with a fork, about 4 minutes. Transfer fillets to a wire rack over a baking sheet. Keep warm in a 200°F oven. Repeat process with remaining 2 tablespoons canola oil and 2 fillets.
3Prepare the Citrus Slaw: Stir together olive oil, vinegar, orange zest, orange juice, sugar, and salt in a large bowl. Add cabbage, scallions, and parsley; toss to coat. Let stand 10 minutes.
4Prepare the Sauce: Stir together all Sauce ingredients.
