Fish Taco Zucchini Noodle Bowl with Creamy Avocado Dressing

Fish Taco Zucchini Noodle Bowl with Avocado Cilantro Dressing

I hope everyone enjoyed their Memorial Day weekend! If you live in the NY/NJ area, the weather wasn’t ideal – it was rainy and gloomy practically the whole time.

For me, it was great weather, because I had to work and I didn’t want to be tempted by any beach weather. And I did end up working – I clocked in a solid 7 hours on Saturday and Sunday!

Although torturous at the time, I’m so glad I put in those hours, because now this week, I’ll be a little bit ahead of the game.

Monday was spent more for me, so it was nice to have one day to get some errands and shopping done. We’re starting to pick up little things here and there for the nursery – we got a rocker from Pottery Barn Kids that we literally saved about $400 on – thank you, weekend sales! We also got a cute hamper and I went home and opened up a registry on PB Kids because I didn’t quite realize how adorable their stuff truly was!

Fish Taco Zucchini Noodle Bowl with Creamy Avocado Dressing

Ingredients

  • For the fish:
  • 1/2 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • (3) 3-oz pieces of cod or white fish
  • 2 teaspoons Cajun seasoning
  • For the creamy avocado dressing:
  • 2-3 tablespoons chopped cilantro
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 1 avocado, peeled and pitted
  • For the rest:
  • 1 large ear of corn, shucked and broken into two pieces
  • 1/2 cup canned black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 3 medium zucchinis, Blade C, noodles trimmed
  • 3/4 cup halved cherry tomatoes
  • 1 small jalapeno, sliced – to garnish

Instructions

  1. Bring a medium pot with a pinch of salt, water and the corn to a boil. Once boiling, let cook for 2-3 more minutes or until corn is easily pierced with a fork. Strain and set aside.
  2. While the corn cooks, place the cod in a bowl with the olive oil, garlic and lime juice and combine. Let sit for 5 minutes. Then, remove the fish from the marinade and season the cod with Cajun seasoning.
  3. While fish marinates, place all of the ingredients for the dressing into a food processor and pulse until creamy. Taste and adjust, if needed. Set aside.
  4. Heat a grill pan or skillet to medium-high. Once heated, place in the cod and cook for about 5 minutes, turning halfway until fish is opaque and flakes easily.
  5. While fish cooks, scrape the corn off the cob with a knife into a small bowl and set aside. Also, toss the zucchini noodles in a large bowl with the avocado sauce until fully combined.
  6. Once fish is done cooking, assemble the fish taco bowls: divide the zucchini noodles into three bowls and place equal portions of black beans, corn and tomatoes. Top each with a piece of fish and garnish with jalapeno slices. Serve immediately.

  18. Katharine in Brussels :
    Hi Ali, I absolutely love raw zucchini noodles, you got me in to them and I eat them every day for lunch! Congratulations on your little bean, it's an exciting time. My daughter is 4 mos old and with spiralizing big raw zucchini salads for lunch I'ae lost 16kg (35lbs) since (she's kiddo #4 too, it can be done). Raw zucchini noodles are much faster and easier than cooking them - awesomeness. I'm trying to eat a little more fish and this is just the perfect recipe for it, thanks, going to prepare it this weekend. Hey, this bowl reminds me of a Korean favorite: bibimbap. Mmm!
