Light and Fresh Fish Taco

I’ve been searchong for some new healthy dinner options. I feel like I’ve had dinner on loop lately. So last night I started back to through the loop woth tacos…but decided at the last minute instead to make this a lighter and tad healthier by using fish as the primary protein instead of the usual ground beef. I have to say it was a delicious change of pace and I’m so glad I decided to change things up!

Here is what you need!

1lb. Fresh cod

3Tbsp butter

2 lg cloves garlic

Zest of one lime

2 Tbsp lime juice

2 Tbsp chicken taco seasoning, I use McCormicks brand.

1/4 c. Cilantro or curly parsley

Shredded lettuce

Shredded cheddar cheese

Cubed avocado

Fresh pico de gaillo

Flour tortillas

In a large sauce pan melt the butter add the garlic and fish. Cook on medium high heat 3 minutes each side. Once you turn the fish add lime zest juice seasoning and cilantro using spatula cut fish into chunks and stir the ingedients around in the pan till coated. Turn down heat and layer fish in the tortilla with any of the additional ingredients you prefer. Enjoy!

Stuffed Peppers, Deconstructed

Have you ever really wanted something to eat but then you remember all of the extra work it takes to make that particular dish so you decide it’s not worth the time. I have several recipes that are like this. Lasagna for example, and in tonight’s case stuffed bell peppers. I love stuffed peppers and there are lots of different ways to make them, but they are a lot of work! Prep and cook the filling, stuff them, top them, and bake em up! It’s a lot of steps!

So tonight I made a deconstructed skillet version of stuffed peppers that are so delicious!

Here’s what you need:

1.5lb lean ground beef or venison

3 bell peppers cut into strips

1 md onion chopped

1pkg pre-cooked brown rice

1can diced tomato

1Tbsp worchestishire sauce

1tbsp onion powder

1tbsp garlic powder

Salt and pepper to taste

1c. Sharp white cheddar cheese shredded

In a hot skillet cook peppers and onions until tender crisp remove and set aside. Brown your ground meat in the same skillet add seasonings, rice and tomato’s cook on med-high heat for another 2-3 minutes add peppers and onions and continue to cook for another ,3-4min. Top with cheese and bake in the oven for approximately ,5minutes or until cheese is melted. Serve hot! Enjoy!!
