Goooood day my friends! I know, I've been a tad absent lately! This time of year at work is pretty bananas and so I haven't really had any down time. But alas, things are starting to steady so I'm hoping to get back into a more consistent blog rotation again. Cool?
I've had a craving for real fish tacos so I picked up some wild-caught frozen mahi over the weekend. Although fresh is typically best, stocking up on some wild-caught filets can really help keeping a healthy routine. Right? Right!
Let's be honest, what makes this dish is the simple and delightful avocado cream. (Can I put this on everything?) That and the combination of the Mahi with sautéed peppers and onions makes for a mouth watering (and healthy) taco.
NEED: (makes two servings or four tacos)
- Two Mahi filets (another firm white fish will work - try to stick with WILD caught fish)
- One red pepper, slivered
- 1/4 red onion, slivered
- 1 avocado
- Juice of 1 lime
- 4 GMO-free corn tortillas
- Evoo, salt, pepper, to taste
Start to sauté peppers and onions in a sauté pan with a bit of Evoo and salt.
Pat the fish dry and drizzle with Evoo, salt, and pepper. Broil on high until cooked through. (Always pat seafood with paper towels before cooking and seasoning. The extra water could end up boiling it and the taste and texture will be kind of awful.)
In a separate bowl, blend avocado, salt, and lime juice. I used a stick blender but if you don't have one just use a food processor.
Heat tortillas evenly and then stack the goods as you wish. I did put a couple dabs of sriracha on each tortilla for an extra zing but, it's not needed.
Plate and serve. Rob and I flipped over this taste combo. I've made avocado cream in the past but the recipe called for a few extra ingredients that ended up giving it a weird taste. Tonight, I kept it simple and it paid off.
There are so many healthy benefits to this meal including but not limited to: protein, healthy fats, vitamin c, fiber, quercetin, antioxidants, antinflammatory agents, b6, folate, and beta-carotene!
Enjoy and have an awesome Wednesday! Xo
