Holy Moly these Fish Taco Bowls are delicious!! Just grab a fork and stir all of the ingredients together for an explosion of flavor! 🙂

Notes:

  • I used frozen, wild-caught cod. You could also substitute skinless halibut, any other white fish or even salmon.
  • You can sprinkle the cod with Taco Seasoning if you like.
  • For spicier tacos, add cayenne or Sriracha sauce.
  • These Fish Taco Bowls are Whole30 & Paleo compliant. They may also be Keto friendly, but I don’t know enough about that one.
  • Yes, you can substitute regular or brown rice in the same quantity. Cook as directed and stir in the lime juice and cilantro.
  • I used red cabbage, but green cabbage would also work…or a combination of the two.

I debated adding mixed greens to the bottom of the bowl, but I wasn’t sure if that would turn it into a salad bowl? LOL. Feel free to add 6 cups of mixed greens if you so desire. 🙂
