Tortilla-Crusted Tilapia

['1 tablespoon fresh lime juice', '4 6-ounce tilapia fillets', '1 teaspoon kosher salt', '1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper', '1 cup finely crushed tortilla chips', '1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper', '1 egg', '1/2 cup mayonnaise', '1 jalapeño, stemmed, seeded, and finely diced', '1 garlic clove, minced', '1 teaspoon chopped fresh cilantro', '1 teaspoon fresh lime juice']

Preheat oven to 400°. Lightly grease a baking sheet or line with parchment paper.
Sprinkle lime juice on both sides of fish, then season both sides with salt and pepper. Stir together tortilla chips and cayenne on a plate. Beat egg in a bowl. Dip each fillet in egg, then roll in chips. Place each coated fillet on prepared baking sheet.
Bake for 15-17 minutes, or until fish flakes.
While fish is baking, make tartar sauce: Mix together mayonnaise, jalapeño, garlic, cilantro, and lime juice. Season to taste with salt. Serve with cooked fish.
