Combine the cucumber, green onion, red onion, vinegar, 1 Tbsp. olive oil, and salt and pepper to taste into a bowl.

In a shallow bowl, combine the cornmeal, cajun seasoning and 1/4 tsp. salt. Dip the tilapia fillets in the mix covering the fillet. Heat 1 Tbsp. olive oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the tilapia and cook until flaky, 3-4 minutes per side.
