Fish Tacos with Cilantro-Lime Cauliflower Rice

Fish Tacos with Cilantro-Lime Cauliflower Rice

So since I’m currently (hopefully not) lost in the middle of the Dutch tulip fields with Lettuce, I got a treat or two or three up my sleeve for some guest posts to take care of you while I’m gone.  With Cinco de Mayo around the corner, I couldn’t leave you without an idea or two to get your party planning brain started, now could I?  I mean, I like you! I really, really like you.

First up is Ellie from Hungry by Nature.  Wholesome eats and treats are her specialty, and today we’ve got her awesome sauce fish tacos with cilantro-lime cauliflower rice. Without further ramblings on my part, meet Ellie!

Hello Hungary Buddha readers! I am so excited to be guest posting for Chrissy today while she is on vacation; thank you for letting me show you a little bit of what I am all about. Hi!! I’m Ellie and I love food. I love making it, baking it, eating it, sharing it, and talking about it.My approach to food is simple – eat healthy, whole, natural foods and always leave room for dessert! I am the founder of Hungry by Nature – a health and wellness website dedicated to inspiring others to live a healthy and balanced life, starting in the kitchen!

It’s my favorite day of the week – Taco Tuesday! Let’s eat some fish tacos.
Let’s get right down to it because tacos are probably most definitely one of my favorite foods. Once I made a different taco variation every single day for an entire week just for the heck of it and I LOVED IT. Every single second of it.

Fish tacos happen to be one of the most wonderful things on the planet. <— That’s actually scientifically proven. I can send you the data if you’re really interested, or you can just trust me. Just trust me.

These tacos are stupid easy to make, but sometimes I am real lazy and in those cases I go to one of two places in Chicago – I love the crispy fish taco from Antique Taco and the raw ahi tuna poke taco from BIG & littles. Srsly. If you live in Chicago and haven’t tried either of those yet, you must.

Like, stop reading this blog and go. Right now. I mean not riiiiight now, please finish reading and then go.

Have you guys gotten into the cauliflower fad – Cauliflower pizza crust? Cauliflower steaks? Cauliflower rice? I tried the pizza crust thing and I just can’t get into it. The crust is the best part of the pizza! And I honestly haven’t tried cauliflower steaks yet… not so sure about it. But I am WAY into cauliflower rice.

And this slaw? So easy (I cheated and bought a bag of cabbage slaw from Trader Joe’s) and the dressing is a simple mix of Greek yogurt and lime juice.

Seriously, this is what fish taco dreams are made of.
