Grilled Tilapia Bowls

Grilled Tilapia Bowls celebrate the vibrant and fresh mix between bright flavors and light grilled fish.  Make it just how you like it by building your own. 

Tilapia Bowls

Grilled Tilapia Bowls were created as a celebration.

One of my fave pastimes is celebrating and creating in the kitchen with friends (paired with a bottle of bubbly).  It goes back to spending late nights with my mom, as we prepared our appetizer spread for the next day’s party. We are both total night hawks! We always had the best time together and it didn’t seem like a chore, but rather, a pre-party to the party. This DIY recipe was created for hosting a group dining experience at home for this reason.

The “bowl” concept is the real deal of Tilapia Bowls and allows for convenience, versatility and less-carbs.

The other fantastic component about Grilled Tilapia Bowl is the idea of a “bowl.” Handpicked ingredients placed on top of each other for a mixture of flavors is pretty much the best thing ever.  Plus, the concept of the bowl takes out the bread or tortilla component, presenting a healthier option.

Grilled Tilapia Bowls create a blend of fish tacos and fajitas.

The Jolly Hostess twist this week is the perfect meal for a get-together centered around food and drink (ohh, my Lemon & Hot Chili Margarita would be a great compliment to this bowl).  The bowl is a combo of fish tacos and fajitas with salsa, Simple Guac and chips in one.  For busy hostesses, you’ll have some prep for this DIY recipe, but the presentation is in charge of your guests (or just the two of you).  Cheers to that!

PS Speaking of bowls, please tell me you’ve seen this skit from SNL! See min 2:30 and you’ll know what I mean.  It’s all I can think of when I create a new bowl.

Instructions
  1. Heat a small-sized skillet with 1 tsp coconut oil (or olive oil, but I love the slightly sweet taste that the coconut adds) and add green pepper and yellow onion. Do the same in a medium-sized skillet with corn and jalapeno. Saute until tender.
  2. While veggies are cooking, make Easy Guacamole (its super quick and delish, promise! - see link in body of copy).  Store-bought guac will work here too. Remember to keep an eye on the veggies.
  3. Chop lettuce and cilantro. Once veggies are done, put green pepper, yellow onion, corn, jalapeno, lettuce, cilantro and salsa in small separate bowls.
  4. Season tilapia with taco seasoning and salt & pepper on both sides.  Spray the medium-sized skillet with coconut oil spray (or cooking spray) and cook for 6-8 mins per side. Cut in 1.5" pieces and transfer to plate for serving.
  5. Create an assembly line starting with lettuce, then tilapia, green peppers & onions, corn & jalapeno, salsa and guacamole.  Place spoons in the bowls for guests to make their own.
  6. Serve with tortilla chips because Mexican food is not the same without chips! Plus, there is major opportunity for dipping here: the mix of the ingredients in the bowl and extra salsa and guac that you just can't let go to waste.
