Fish Taco Bowls

Fish tacos are delicious, but if we’re being honest, dealing with the finger food isn’t always appealing. That and, if you dislike corn and whole wheat tortillas, keeping your grains whole in a taco situation is unsatisfying. The solution to both problems? Make it a bowl.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup instant brown rice
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 lb. tilapia
  • 2 tsp. salt-free Mexican seasoning
  • 1 (15 oz.) can no-salt-added corn
  • 1 (15 oz.) can no-salt-added black beans
  • 1 cup Guiding Star-worthy salsa
  • 1 cup plain, non-fat Greek yogurt
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • 1 avocado, cubed

Directions

  1. Cook rice according to package directions.
  2. While rice cooks, heat olive oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add the fish and sprinkle with Mexican seasoning. Fry until fish is no longer translucent and flakes easily with a fork (3-4 minutes per side).
  3. In a medium bowl, combine corn, black beans, and salsa.
  4. In another bowl, whisk together yogurt, lime juice, and salt.
  5. Divide rice among four bowls. Top with equal portions of fish, corn mix, and yogurt sauce. Top with cubed avocado.
