Mmmmmmmmmm, I love anything that involves a tortilla. Corn, wheat, big or small I’m all about them. They come in a variety of textures and flavors and you can pretty much switch any meal you currently eat with slices of bread to tortillas.
Happy Almost New Year, and let’s start off on the right foot! Eating leaner meats, less breads, and more whole, REAL foods will help you on your journey of leading a healthier life no matter the resolution. Eating nutrient dense real food is just another form of self love if you think about it!
Mike and I were craving some tacos the other day, but we are cutting way back on the meat. I am also cutting way back on the cheese and dairy (sad face), but I am going to shoot for going vegan in the year 2015. There is just so much information out there that is hard to ignore for me. I continue to do my research, however, and I encourage you to find a healthy plan that resonates with you.
Fish tacos are still in play here at our house, and we came up with an AWESOME and EASY meal the other night! Check it out below, and have an incredible night tonight!
White Fish Tacos with Mango Salsa:
What You Will Need:
- 2-3 white fish filets of choice (we picked cod pieces) fresh is always best!
- 5-6 small corn tortillas
- 1 can of corn
- 1 can of black beans
- 1 cup of rice COOKED
- 1 tablespoon of Trader Joe’s 21 seasoning salute
- 1 tablespoon of cumin
- 1 teaspoon of chili powder
- 1 teaspoon of cayene
- 1 ripe mango
- 3 tomatoes off the vine
- 1/4 white onion
- 1 teaspoon of oregano
- 1 teaspoon of pepper
- 1 piece of candied ginger
- chopped lettuce
- avocado, sliced
- squeeze of lime
What You Will Need To Do:
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees for later (you’ll want to warm your tortilla for this!)
- Be sure to cook your rice ahead of time. After it is finished, mix in a can of drained black beans.
- Dip your fish filets in your spice mixture. Heat about 1-2 tablespoons of oil on medium and add the coated fish pieces to your pan. Cook for about 10-12 minutes total depending on your fish. Add your can of corn in the last 3 minutes.
- While your fish is cooking, use a food processor to mix the salsa ingredients.
- When you have about three minutes left for the fish to cook, place your tortilla shells on a baking sheet and bake for about 3 minutes. You can fold them over lightly for the to get a nice shell shape.
- Place your fish inside of a tortilla shell with the salsa and any garnishes. The squeeze of lime just tops it all off!
- *******Easy way to get the maximum food from mangoes and avocados: Cross hatch cut across and scoop out the inside with the spoon!
Hoping you enjoy your night and your new year begins well!! ❤
