Easy Peasy Fish Tacos

Well hello again, I can’t believe I’m actually writing a post within a few days of my last, it’s a miracle.

I just thought I’d pop in quickly and share what I made for dinner last night, as it was a big hit.

Fish tacos!

I didn’t make these grain free however you could easily serve them over a bed of cauliflower rice instead of the traditional corn tortillas and rice.

Fish tacos with avocado mango salsa, a sweet slaw and cilantro lime rice

Lets start with the fish tacos

Corn tortillas, I make sure there’s at least 2/3 per person.

About 1 pound of white fish (snapper, tilapia, cod…)

1 lime

½ tsp chili powder

½ tsp cumin powder

1 crushed clove of garlic

1 tablespoon of olive oil (I used avocado oil)

Salt and pepper

Unpack the fish and place it in a baking dish. Squeeze the lime over the fish, sprinkle the chili powder, cumin, salt and pepper over the fish and then drizzle the oil. Rub in the marinade with your hands and flip the fish over so it is completely covered. Store in fridge for at least 30 minutes before cooking.

To cook, preheat oven to 400 and bake fish for about 20 minutes, until all the fish is cooked through.

Avocado mango salsa

1 mango diced

2 avocados chopped

1 bunch cilantro chopped

Juice of 1 lime

Salt and pepper to taste

Mix everything in a big bowl and your good to go

Sweet slaw

½ head of purple cabbage

2 carrots

1 apple

1 bunch of green onions, diced

1 bunch of cilantro, chopped

Juice of 1 ½ limes

1 tbsp maple syrup

¼ cup avocado oil (or olive oil)

Run the cabbage, carrots and apple through the food processor until they are nice and shredded. Add in the onions, cilantro and the dressing. Mix well to combine.

It is best to make a few hours before you eat so that the flavors have time to blend together.

Cilantro Lime rice

1 cup of cooked rice, still warm (brown or white)

Juice of 1 lime

¼ cup chopped cilantro

A little avocado oil to get things moving

Salt and pepper to taste.

While the rice is still warm, stir in the lime juice, cilantro, oil, salt and pepper until you are happy with the taste.

There you have it, a really yummy easy weeknight meal! I made the slaw and the marinade the night before so it only took me about 20 minutes to cook the fish, make the salsa, cook the rice and assemble the tacos- easy peasy! Ordering take out takes longer!

Hope you enjoy 🙂
