paleo fish tacos
What's better than tacos? FISH TACOS! Nothing is more satisfying than eating a full meal and not feeling gross due to malnutrition of the meal... like the grease or the breading or whatever is was that isn't good for your body. Many Americans don't eat enough seafood... one week next year I am planning on going one week eating nothing but seafood for my meat component, and maybe that will turn into the entire year or my entire life. But I digress. This meal is super quick and simple as long as you keep veggies in your house, and you don't even have to know anything about cooking to throw it together. No excuses!
fish fillets (I used flounder since that's what we caught)
pinch of cayenne, salt, pepper, chili, cumin
2 cloves garlic, tomatoes, onions, green peppers, all chopped
salsa (optional, but delicious suggestion)
Spoon on a T of olive oil over the fish. Sprinkle the seasoning onto the fish fillets then broil for 4-5 minutes per side, or you can blacken them on the stove top if you prefer. As the fish are being broiled, saute the vegetables for about 3 minutes, then remove from heat. Top the lettuce with fish, then with vegetables, then with salsa if you desire.
2 Tomatoes, diced
1/2 yellow onion, diced
2 jalapenos, chopped
1/2 lime, squeezed
handful of cilantro, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
Stir it all together and you've got fresh salsa! Come on guys, please don't use jarred salsa... once you go fresh, you'll never go back. It's so simple... just do it.
