Fish Taco Bowls

Fish Taco Bowls

This colorful, healthy dinner is easy to put together, even on a busy night. Fish Taco Bowls are a lot of fun to make and customize!

Hi everyone! It’s Jenna from A Savory Feast. Today I’m sharing my Fish Taco Bowls recipe. It’s a lighter alternative to the classic fish tacos, but still 100% delicious!

This recipe came about when I had a craving for fish tacos the other day. My fiancé and I don’t eat a lot of flour, so we generally avoid tortillas. I decided to try putting my favorite fish taco ingredients in a bowl with rice to get that fish taco flavor without the flour tortillas.

Here in Florida, the weather is finally starting to get nice enough to eat outside. This is the perfect dinner to enjoy on the deck with a margarita!

Meals like this are great for entertaining. You can set up a bar with the toppings and let your guests customize their fish taco bowls.
