Spicy Fish Taco Bowls

Fish tacos are popular for a good reason. They’re delicious. Taco bowls are a slightly simpler variation on that trend. Brown rice layered with spiced fish and a mountain of delicious veggies makes for a colorful and satisfying meal.

Tip: To make this dish in half the time, use instant brown rice.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup brown rice
  • 1 Tbsp. chili powder
  • 1 Tbsp. cumin
  • ½ tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 1 lb. tilapia fillets
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup fresh sweet corn kernels
  • 1 red onion, diced
  • 1 red pepper, diced
  • 1 (15 oz.) can low-sodium black beans
  • Optional Garnishes*:

    • fresh cilantro
    • avocado
    • pico de gallo

Directions

  1. Cook rice according to package directions.
  2. While rice cooks, mix the spices together in a small bowl and sprinkle evenly over both sides of the fish fillets.
  3. In a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, sauté garlic (1-2 minutes).
  4. Add the fish fillets to the pan and grill until flaky and no longer translucent (4-5 minutes). Remove from pan and keep warm.
