With the summer upon us, I have been searching out ways to get in shape. I do not think there is a woman out there that does not dread that little phrase, “Swimsuit Shopping”. I know just the thought of it sends chills up my spine. With that in mind, I have set my eyes on the Whole30 Challenge. I have been on it for two weeks and have to praise that I have not cheated once. It has been okay but I’m not going to deny that there has been moments when I just wanted to go into the kitchen and grab a whole can of Pringle’s and eat everyone!! That is not going to happen!! I am going to make it to the 30 days no matter what! I am ready for a life change and I want to be skinnier and Healthy!
Heat 3T of olive oil in a skillet
over medium-high heat. Throw in the peppers and onions, and a good pinch of
salt, toss with wooden spoon to coat the veggies in the olive oil. When the
onions begin to lightly brown on the edges turn down the stove to medium-low.
Stir occasionally until the veggies are tender but still have a bit of crisp to
them, around 5 more minutes. Taste and add more salt and a touch of pepper if
needed. Then set them aside.
Next, heat up your grill so that it
is pretty hot, but not blazing. While the grill is heating, peel and slice the
avocados into thin slices. For presentation: Arrange the avocados, cilantro,
and lime wedges on a nice dinner plate.
Next step is to prepare the fish for
cooking. Take the remaining 3T of olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper and
give the tilapia a good rub. As soon as your grill is hot, softly lay the
tilapia on the grill and grill them, Do Not fiddle with the tilapia, for three
to four minutes per side, depends on the thickness of the fillets. The tilapia
should be cooked through but not dry. Delicately remove the fish from the grill
to a serving plate and wrap with foil for warmth. (If you are not using a grill,
all you have to do is cook the tilapia in skillet over medium-high heat the
same as above.)
Take a large sheet of aluminum foil
and wrap the tortillas and place them on the grill till their warm. You can heat the tortillas right on the grill
by flipping them with tongs back and forth for about 10 to 15 seconds. But the
foil way is quicker!
To bring your fish tacos together,
slice the tilapia into medium chunks with a knife. Then take a warm tortilla
and place as many pieces of fish down the center of the tortilla. Top if off
with handful of peppers and onions, some slices of avocado and a few sprigs of
cilantro. Add a spoonful of Pico or Salsa topped with a dollop sour cream. Finally squeeze
a generous amount of lime juice across the top.
Fold the tortilla and enjoy.
