Coconutty flakey fish in a bowl full of veggies and delicious toppings is a great way to change it up! Fish is on the menu often at my house so I’m always trying to find new flavors and ways to pair it with veggies. White fish doesn’t have to be boring!

By lightly coating it in coconut and spices, it adds texture and variety. The cauliflower rice and beans are a great side addition and of course a taco bowl wouldn’t be complete without the toppings. Add even more veggies with salsa and avocado, making it a healthy weeknight meal option.
