I absolutely LOVE Mexican food! THIS meal took me years to perfect and I have to say that it is exactly where I want it to be – Mexican food heaven! When I would indulge in the cheesy dairy and sour cream laden Mexican food at restaurants I would often leave feeling bloated and unwell. I wanted to recreate my favs and felt that I could use my culinary background as a trained Chef to make it all from scratch. This is definitely one of our top 5 to thrive meals that the huz and I have often enjoy once a week! Hellloooooo taco Tuesday’s again! It has all of the flavours and fixings of a Mexican restaurant night out – without the food hangover!
Super satisfying with all of the healthy fats to make you feel calm and satiated whilst ensuring plenty of fibre to feed your good gut buddies (microbiota!) When sourcing fish look for a ‘sustainably caught’ white fish, preferably wild caught (not always available) and from the ocean. Butter lettuce cups, or coz lettuce boats are the perfect low carb ‘taco’ shells – less all of the industrialised oxidised rancid grain, seed and veg oils. This has to be the healthiest Mexican on the planet that won’t compromise on taste, texture or mouthfeel! If you can find a grain free tortilla or soft taco shells (I love Sieta brand, but can’t always get them here in Hong Kong) then try them in place of the lettuce taco shells. You will be surprised though just how amazing the lettuce works to wrap everything up and how full you will feel!
This meal is colourful, flavourful and filling whilst still feeling light and energised. Make yourself a Mojito if it’s a weekend taco night, (or virgin equivalent if you don’t drink like me) and enjoy!
I promise you that making the 4 fixings to go with your tacos will be well worth it! If you plan for a taco Tuesday, you could prep the fixings on Sunday or Monday (except the guac) like we like to do ahead of time. This way, I just have to season and bake the fish and make my fresh guac, which would brown if left in the fridge for days. It’s much better when made fresh! These are honestly mine and the huz favourite tacos and have been a STAPLE whilst on lockdown here in the house during isolation! Give them a try and don’t forget to post up your pics and tag me on instagram at: @thrivewithpriscilla Enjoy these awesome taco’s!
