Tilapia Tacos with Peach Salsa

Let me start out by saying that the peach salsa in this recipe is really good! However, the breading would not stay on the fish very well, and it was not crispy. I think that if I would make this again I would probably just sprinkle the fish with some spices and pan-fry it in a little oil.

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
1 pound tilapia, cut into 2-inch strips
