It’s almost Friday and that means it’s almost my birthday and that means MARGARITAS!! I’m pre-partying a bit today with Fish Taco Bowls because duh.
There’s no need to get into my love of a bowl. We’ve addressed it several times and I know it’s trendy but I don’t care! Bowls aren’t going anywhere and I love them. This one starts with perfectly cooked white rice, although feel free to use brown rice, farro or quinoa if you prefer! Then you’ll make the most delicious vinegar based slaw to give it some zip. No mayo based slaws here…. no thank you! Then just grill some fish and add some avocado and it’s the most perfect combination of foods in a bowl ever!
- 1/3 head green cabbage, shredded
- 1/3 head red cabbage, shredded
- 1 large carrot, grated
- 1/2 yellow onion, thinly sliced
- 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar or red wine vinegar
- 1/4 cup water
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
- 1 pound cod fish
- olive for for drizzling
- kosher salt and pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
- 1 lime
- 1 orange
- Cooked Jasmine Rice
- 1 cup Guacamole OR Sliced avocado
- Pico de Gallo
- Combine the cabbage, carrot, and onion in a large bowl. Combine the remaining ingredients in a separate bowl and then pour over the cabbage mixture and stir.
- Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours before using.
- Preheat an indoor or outdoor grill over medium high heat. Drizzle the cod dish with a touch of olive oil and season it with salt, pepper and red pepper flakes. Grill the fish on the grill for 5-6 minutes on each side until fully cooked. The fish should flake easily and there should be a golden brown crust.
- Remove the fish from the grill and squeeze the fresh lime and orange juice over the fish. Adjust salt and pepper as needed.
- To assemble, place a layer of steamed rice in the bottom of a bowl. Add some of the curtido to half of the bowl. Add the fish, avocado, pico and season with salt and pepper as needed. Serve immediately.
