Instructions

To make the fish:

  1. Pat the fish dry with paper towels and then season both sides with the cumin, chili powder, salt, and garlic powder. 
  2. Heat a non-stick skillet over medium heat and swirl in a bit of olive oil to coat the pan. 
  3. Once the oil is hot, add the fish to the skillet and cook for 3 minutes. Carefully flip the fish over and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes or until fish easily flakes with a fork. 
  4. Set fish aside.

To make the sauce: 

  1. While the fish is cooking, whisk together all ingredients for the sauce until smooth. 

To make the slaw:

  1. Add all of the ingredients to a large bowl and stir to combine.
  2. Taste and add additional lime juice or salt, as desired.

To serve: 

  1. Divide the cauliflower rice between 4 bowls. Arrange the fish, coleslaw, red onion, and tomatoes over the cauliflower rice.
  2. Drizzle the sauce evenly over the bowls. Sprinkle with red onion and cilantro.
  3. Serve immediately.

Notes

Don't be intimidated by the long list of ingredients and steps. The sauce and slaw just get stirred together, as easy as can be. Both can also be made ahead to make it even easier at dinner time.

We linked to our recipe for cilantro lime cauliflower rice, but you can sometimes find it pre-made in the freezer section of the grocery store. Super simple!

Tomatoes, red onion, avocado, guacamole, jalapeno, and cilantro all make great toppings. Feel free to get creative.
