Fish Taco Bowls

Health comes sometimes to our minds especially after big feasts as Xmas and the new year. Fish is of course very healthy food and should be eaten at least twice a week. But that is not enough, we also have to think about what we serve with the fish. Vegetables are very good for that purpose. Therefor we recommend this very healthy recipe for your next dinner.

Ingredients:

  • 2 corn on cob, cooked, kernels cut from cob
  • 2 cups cooked brown rice (I added the juice of a fresh lime + chopped cilantro leaves to the rice)
  • 2 Tbsps avocado oil or olive oil or coconut oil
  • 4, 4-5 oz skinless, cod or halibut filets
  • 6 cups mixed baby greens
  • 1/2 cup prepared black beans, rinsed well if using canned
  • 1 avocado, diced
  • 1/2 red cabbage sliced very thin
  • 1 red pepper, sliced (I roasted mine)
  • 1 cup grape, or cherry tomatoes, sliced
  • Fresh lime wedges, and fresh cilantro to serve

Instructions:

Heat oil in a large frying pan over med/high heat, pat dry fish with paper towel, then season with a pinch of sea salt & pepper.

Cook fish for about 4-5 minutes per side, until flakes easily. Cover tightly or wrap in foil while assembling the salads.

Divide all ingredients evenly between 4 large bowls, adding warm fish last.
