I mean, it was only a matter of time (aka 48 hours) until we started rolling out ideas for all the new products in the What’s Gaby Cooking collection! Today we’re diving head first into the Gaby’s Go To blend because it’s going to make your weeknight meals THAT much better!

Gaby’s Go To it’s the perfect combo for any and all seafood. Salmon, Mahi Mahi, Scallops, Shrimp, Cod, you name it… anything that could benefit from a mediterranean flair! I crusted it on top of Mahi Mahi for these bowls and then added a touch of salt and cooked it until flaky. The result was the most incredible white fish I have ever had – no joke!! That goes onto some Cauliflower rice with salsa verde to make it healthy green rice. And then a quick pineapple salsa goes on top to make it even more flavorful and tropical.

Everything is PERFECTION and you need it in your life STAT! And like I said earlier – you could use it for all seafood and swap out in this recipe. If you wanted to do shrimp with a seasoning crust – done and done. Salmon – I support you. Crusted scallops – get your life. It works with EVERYTHING!

For the Cauliflower Rice

  • 4 cups cauliflower florets
  • 1 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 lemon
  • Kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper
  • ¼ cup salsa verde below, plus extra as needed

For the Fish

For the Salsa

  • 2 cups diced fresh pineapple 1/4-inch pieces
  • 1 cup diced mango 1/4-inch pieces
  • ½ cup finely diced red onion
  • 3 thinly sliced scallions green parts only
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped red jalapeño chile pepper
  • 2 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 tablespoons chopped chives
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • Kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper to taste

For the Salsa Verde

  • 1 head parsley
  • 1 head cilantro
  • 20 leaves basil
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2 tablespoons capers rinsed
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 cup - 3/4 cup olive oil
  • Kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper to taste


For the Salsa Verde

  • In a food processor, combine herbs, garlic, and vinegar and capers. Pulse until coarsely chopped, 20-40 seconds. Transfer to a small bowl and stir in olive oil. Season with salt and pepper.

For the Tropical Salsa

  • In a medium bowl combine the diced pineapple, mango, red onion, scallions, jalapeño, cilantro, chives and lime juice. Toss to combine and season with salt and pepper. Let the salsa chill for 30 minutes in the refrigerator before serving.

For the Cauliflower Rice

  • Make sure your cauliflower is fully dry. Place the cauliflower in a food processor and pulse until it has the texture of rice, about 30 seconds. Work in batches if necessary and don’t over process or it will get mushy.
  • In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil over medium heat. Add the cauliflower and sauté until heated through, about 3-4 minutes. Season with salt, pepper and a squeeze the juice of ½ of a lemon on top to help remove any bitterness from the raw cauliflower. Remove from the skillet and toss with the ¼ cup of salsa verde. Portion the “rice” into 4 serving bowls.

For the Fish

  • Preheat an indoor or outdoor grill over medium high heat. Drizzle the fish with a touch of olive oil and liberally season it with Gaby's Go To seasoning.
  • Grill the fish on the preheated grill for 5-6 minutes on each side until fully cooked. The fish should flake easily and have a golden crust. Remove the fish from the grill and squeeze the remaining lemon juice over the fish.
  • Divide the fish into even servings on top of the cauliflower rice. Top with equal amounts of the pineapple mango salsa. Season with salt and pepper and serve.

  2. Mama Maggie’s Kitchen

    Oh my word! I need this in my life. I have to rethink dinner tonight. lol.

  3. Erica

    Can you include at the top of the recipe how many servings it’s written for? I’d like to know so I can scale accordingly. Thanks!

  4. Lucky Woman

    Why do I have so much Salsa Verde if I only need 1/4 cup?

    • Gaby

      cause it’s tough to make just 1/4 cup worth! you can use the extra with any kind of protein, on pasta or rice, as a salad dressing etc

  5. Erin Irving

    This was so so yummy! I didn’t get a chance to take a picture before it was all scarfed down! I followed the recipe exactly and it was so good, I will definitely be making it again.

  6. Jeanne

    I could eat this everyday of my life! It was that delicious.
    I had the cauliflower but I served my husband and son the fish on a grilled tortilla. It was a huge hit all around. Thanks Gaby!

  7. Olya

    What kind of an outdoor grill do you have and would you recommend it?

  8. Lisa

    How much is a HEAD of parsley .
    Please excuse my ignorance .

    • Gaby

      1 bunch! it’s how they sell it in the store. Roughly 1 packed cup

    I made this tonight for dinner and really enjoyed it. I was a little nervous because I’m new to cooking fish. I also live in a city apartment and don’t have a grill, so I used a regular pan on the stove, which seemed to work fine. I also halved the salsa verde (which is more of a chimichurri) and it worked great with a little still leftover. Would definitely make this for guests after I have a little more practice!

    This was perfection for my first grilling day of the season! I ate the leftover pineapple salsa by the spoonful!!

  12. Carrie Sullivan

    I just used the last of your seafood seasoning that I have been hoarding because it’s been discontinued. Would your Gimme Chimi work in its place?

  13. Catherine

    I have no access to your seasfood seasoning, what else can I put on it?


  14. Katie

    hi! All Things Seafood isn’t available for purchase anymore. Is there another spice or mix we could use for a similar flavor?

    This is delicious!! I made it without the salsa and roasted some corn kernels and put them on top with some chipotle salsa. It is so good!!

    Made with salmon, and highly recommend. The salsa verde in the cauliflower rice is amazing!

  17. Stefanie

    You can no longer purchase “All Things Seafood” seasoning. What do you recommend in its place or do you plan on rereleasing this spice?
