<article itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Recipe"> <section itemprop="description"> <p>Big, bold flavors are the hallmarks of Mexican cuisine. But sometimes all the carnitas and carne asada can feel a little too heavy. Lighten up with the tangy, bright tastes of the tropical state of Veracruz, where citrus and herbs perk up meals. This twist on traditional fish tacos is fast enough for lunch, yet filling enough for your Taco Tuesday dinner.</p> </section> <section> <header>Treasure from the Deep</header> <p>It seems like every day, you hear conflicting nutritional advice from doctors and scientists. Today you should eat more of a certain food; tomorrow it’s terrible for you. But one thing nearly every expert agrees on is that fish should be a staple of a healthy diet! That’s because fish is high in protein, relatively low in calories, and full of healthy omega-3 fats. These fats are proven to improve your heart health in as little as two weeks! Omega-3s lower your risk of heart attack, improve your cholesterol levels, and control blood pressure. Plus, eating firm white fish like cod just twice a month can lower your risk of stroke. </p> </section> <section> <header>Savoring Cilantro</header> <p>Cilantro is a key herb in many Mexican and Asian dishes. Many people love its very recognizable flavor, whereas others actively hate it. That’s because 15% of people have a genetic variant that makes this leafy herb taste like soap! If you can’t stand cilantro, try replacing it with half basil and half parsley in this recipe to get similarly bold flavors—minus the soapy taste. But if you like cilantro, load up! Beyond packing in plenty of flavor, cilantro delivers huge amounts of vitamins A, C, and K. These help build healthy skin, eyes, and bones, as well as protecting against dementia and some cancers.</p> </section> <hr class="divider-15 divider-thick mx-auto"> <section class="recipe"> <header itemprop="name">Fish Taco Bowls</header> <div class="prep"> <span> <meta itemprop="prepTime" content="PT15M">Prep Time: 15 minutes</span> <span> <meta itemprop="cookTime" content="PT35M">Cooking Time: 15 minutes</span> <span> <meta itemprop="recipeYield">Serves: 2</span> </div> <div class="sub-head">Ingredients</div> <ul class="ingredients no-bullet"> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient"><b>Fish</b></li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">&frac34; pound cod, halibut, or other firm white fish</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">1 tablespoon lime juice (from about 1/2 lime)</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">3 tablespoons avocado oil, divided</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">2 teaspoons chili powder</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">&frac12; teaspoon garlic powder</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">&frac12; teaspoon cumin</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">&frac12; teaspoon smoked paprika</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">&frac12; teaspoon dried oregano</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">&frac12; teaspoon salt</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">&frac14; teaspoon pepper</li> </ul> <ul class="ingredients no-bullet"> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient"><b>Creamy Chipotle Sauce</b></li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">&frac14; cup mayonnaise</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">&frac14; cup sour cream</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">1 chipotle pepper in adobo sauce, chopped fine</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">&frac12; teaspoon chipotle powder</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">&frac12; teaspoon garlic powder</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">&frac12; teaspoon cumin</li> </ul> <ul class="ingredients no-bullet"> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient"><b>Fresh Salsa</b></li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">2 tomatoes, seeded and chopped</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">&frac12; green bell pepper, seeded and chopped</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">&frac12; small red onion, chopped (about 2 tablespoons)</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">1 tablespoon lime juice (from about ½ lime)</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">&frac14; teaspoon salt</li> </ul> <ul class="ingredients no-bullet"> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient"><b>Bowls</b></li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">2 cups cauliflower rice, steamed</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">4 cups mixed salad greens</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">1 avocado, sliced</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">&frac14; cup fresh cilantro, chopped</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">(Optional) Toppings: pickled jalapeño peppers</li> </ul> <hr class="divider-50 divider-medium"> <div class="sub-head">Instructions</div> <ol itemprop="recipeInstructions"> <li>Marinate the fish: Place the fish fillets in a baking dish, pan, or zip-top bag. In a small bowl, whisk the lime juice and 1 tablespoon of avocado oil together with all the spices.

Alternatively, you can whirl all the ingredients together in a food processor or mini blender until smooth and creamy.</li> <li>Cook the fish: Heat the remaining 2 tablespoons of avocado oil in a skillet over medium heat.
