Fish Taco Bowls with Sweet Potato Rice
While #TacoTuesday seems to be an ongoing trend on social media, the truth is, taco night is usually Saturday in our house. I’ve been making and eating homemade tacos on Saturday nights for most of my life, and if my husband and I are home on Saturday for dinner, we’re almost always going to be making tacos.
But, come Tuesday, I sometimes see my social media feeds filled with delicious-looking tacos, and I feel a bit left out. So, I’ve started add a second taco-inspired-but-not-quite-tacos meal to our weekly schedule, usually something along the lines of taco bowls.
These Fish Taco Bowls with Sweet Potato Rice are a new favorite around here. First, I make sweet potato “rice” by spiralizing a sweet potato and then blitzing it in the food processor to make rice-like bits.
The rice is topped with beans (usually black or pinto beans, or a combination of both like in my vegetarian fajitas), a fresh tropical salsa made with mango, tomatoes and cilantro, and some luscious slices of avocado.
To easily make these bowls even more filling, The Saucy Fish Co. products are a great option. If you love ordering perfectly sauced fish in restaurants but are a bit intimidated by making it at home, The Saucy Fish Co. is here to help you make fish without the fuss.
Each package contains beautiful cuts of fish and a sauce sachet that allows you to make fish that looks good, cooks good and tastes great, with no bones and no mess.
The Herb Crusted Atlantic Salmon with Lemon Butter Sauce worked out great for my Fish Taco Bowls, but there are lots of other fish varieties and flavor profiles to choose from, too. Seared Chilean sea bass would also be an excellent choice for these bowls.
The Saucy Fish Co. products can be found at all Meijer stores, not in the frozen seafood case but in end-caps – ask at the Seafood counter where to find it in the store if needed. For more information on The Saucy Fish Co., be sure to visit their website and connect with them on Twitter and Instagram.
