Can you ever really have enough tacos in life?!?
Just looking at this is making me hungry (I will resist until dinner though!). Ok so similar to our Veggie Street Taco recipe, this one is all focused on the the plants! My husband Jay and I are all about getting in that daily fiber paired with really healthy doses of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals... all things that keep us not just functioning adequately, but at our BEST!
- 1 pounds Wild Caught Cod, Flounder or Mahi Mahi (thankfully there are not many Mahi farms out there haha so most will be wild caught, but be sure to ask about the Cod or purchase Orca Bay Wild Caught Frozen Brand and simply thaw before use!)
- 2-4 tbs Avocado Oil or Avocado Oil Spray
- 12 oz. Pre-packaged shredded carrots and red cabbage
- 1 small red onion
- 1 avocado
- 1 large bunch of cilantro
- Simply Organic's Fish Taco Seasoning
- 2 limes
- 1 jalapeno (optional)
- tortillas optional but recommended! Otherwise use lettuce cups!
- 1/2 cup Tahini (find near the peanut butters in most grocery stores!)
We like Eden Foods Tahini but if you can't find it most stores carry the Joyva Brand!
- 3 tbs apple cider vinegar
- 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup water (depending on the consistency you are looking for!)
- 1/2 fresh cut lime
- Generous salt and pepper!
Drink 12 oz of cold water!! You are about to eat, so don't forget about hydration to properly digest and sense satiety after the meal.
Turn oven to 375 degrees. Drink 12 oz of cold water!! You are about to eat, so don't forget about hydration to properly digest and sense satiety after the meal.
While the oven is heating up, spray a baking pan with avocado oil (or spread 1 tbs evenly over pan).
Prepare the fish on the pan, coating both sides with seasoning, salt and pepper. Set aside until the oven is ready.
Wash your hands now! Now begin fixing the veggie ingredients (preventing cross contamination is so important to keeping ourselves and family healthy!)
In a medium bowl, empty out the shredding carrots and cabbage.
Cut one lime in half and 1 lime into quarters. Juice 1 quarter of lime over cabbage mixture. Set aside remaining limes.
Peel and chop the red onion to desired thickness (we like them small! see the best way to fix onions HERE).
The oven should be done- place the pan of fish in the oven and cook for 15-18 minutes or until the ends are crispy and when poked with a fork the flesh appears solid white.
While the fish are cooking, prepare the dishes for serving. If using tortillas, heat them in the microwave for 10-15 seconds or lay them on a pan over medium heat until warmed though. Place the remaining quartered limes onto the serving plates. Fill the tacos with the cabbage mixture and top with cilantro.
Half and slice the avocado like done HERE! Then fill the tacos with desired portion of avocado!
Time for the dressing!!! Simply add all ingredients into a medium bowl and wisk with a fork until the tahini is fully blended into the liquid mixture!
Once the fish is done, immediately flake and add to a pan on the stove over medium heat. Squeeze 1/2 lime, salt and pepper and cook for 1-2 minutes. Remove fish from pan and pour over tacos!
Place the remaining ingredients in the to-go containers like featured in the above photo, place the pan and baking tray into the dishwasher or sink for easy clean-up.
Sit down, put on some chill music, turn off the phone and enjoy the meal!!
You'll notice we really go into the details here not only about the recipe but the actions we should consider anytime we put a fork to our mouth. Eating is a beautiful necessity of life that far too often we forget to put a lot of thought into. We standup, multitask, eat on the go, and many times don't even remember the taste of the food. A busy life is one thing, but at Whole Cruzine we emphasis how to determine when life is busy and when it is becoming mindless. Some of the most successful business owners, athletes and entrepreneurs explain how they make mindfulness a priority despite their demanding schedules- and who's to say we can't do that too?
