This recipe is a low-carb fish taco bowl recipe that uses taco seasonings to make fish seasoned with Mexican spices, perfectly seasoned and sautéed in avocado and green onion.
I know, I know…fish tacos are not exactly what you think of when you think low carb or keto cooking. But, trust me, this is a great keto meal. It’s got a mix of flavors that really hits the spot. The key ingredient is the taco sauce, it’s not a low carb replacement but it does help keep the carb count low.
When it comes to tacos, I’m a taco fiend. I have to have corn tortillas, plenty of cheese, guacamole, and salsa to go with my protein. Otherwise, I’m not a happy camper. And so, this recipe was born. It’s a simple one, and it’s a little bit of a work in progress, but as always, it’s basically a matter of throwing things together.
Bowl of low-carb fish tacos
For Taco Tuesday, how about a refreshing all-in-one fish taco bowl? Crispy veggies, juicy avocado, and fresh cilantro abound in this delicious low-carb dish. It’s comfort cuisine at its best, but with a healthy twist!
To give the flavors time to develop, combine the dressing ingredients before frying the fish. If you’re intending to eat it right away, leave it out at room temperature; otherwise, store it in the fridge. When the dressing isn’t ice cold, it tastes finest.
Except for the avocado, shred or slice all veggies thinly using a sharp knife or mandolin. Remove the pit from the avocado and cut it in half. Using a spoon, scoop out the avocado chunks and cut them into slices. Combine the veggies and place on a dish. Season with salt and pepper to taste, then drizzle with olive oil.
Salt both sides of the fish and let aside for a few minutes. Dry the fish with paper towels and season both sides with Tex-Mex spice.
Depending on the size of the fish, fry it in oil for 3-4 minutes on both sides at a medium temperature. Reduce the heat as you get closer to the finish. You may also use gridiron to cook the fish in the oven or on an outdoor grill.
With two forks, cut the salmon into tiny pieces. Garnish with fresh cilantro and a drizzle of dressing.
You can create your own Tex-Mex seasoning if you don’t have any on hand. Simply mix equal parts paprika, cumin, and onion powder, or use this recipe.
