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

Today’s recipe is a fish taco bowl that may seem like it takes a lot of steps, but it’s all worth it – once you have the finished product, you’ll be so happy you took the time to make it! It’s got all the right spices, seasonings, and textures.

Fish Taco Zucchini Noodle Bowl with Creamy Avocado Dressing

Prep Time20 mins
Cook Time20 mins
Total Time40 mins

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

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.

When I first read Fish Taco Zucchini Noodle Bowl I thought it sounded well, kind of yucky. Then I saw that beautiful, colorful picture of the finished product. WOW!!! I can't wait to make this. Thank you for another beautiful , nutritious, delicious new dish to make. You're the best.
Ali says:
Am I reading correctly, we do not cook the zucchini?
Dianne says:
Is the Zuchinni left raw and cold?? So I am assuming that the fish is served at room temp.
Ali Maffucci says:
Zucchini is raw, fish is served as instructed in the recipe - hot!
Ruth says:
Same question as Ali: we don't cook the zucchini noodles?
Ali Maffucci says:
Yes, unless it indicates to cook the noodles in the recipe, you can assume the noodles are raw!
Katharine in Brussels says:
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!
Meaghan says:
We're so happy you were inspired to give them a shot! We appreciate your note!

cauliflower and carrot masala, totally normal meal on thanksgiving eve, right? 😅🥄

tomorrow we’re going to my BIL’s to hang out with Lu’s side of the family, and I’m excited to see everyone (it’s been YEARS!) and have the kids spend time with their cousins, aunts and uncles 🙏🏼

for the curry, simmer cauliflower, carrots, a jar of @mayakaimalfoods, and 2 cups of @bonafideprovisions veggie broth in a large pot for 20 minutes or until thickened to your preference. add cooked lentils, stir, and serve with jasmine rice, chutney and toasted naan. easy 30 minute meal 👏🏼 not exactly thanksgiving-friendly, but worth a share!

safe travels today and tomorrow and wishing everyone a safe and happy thanksgiving 🦃 I’m so grateful for you

rio and sol are 10 weeks old today! 👶🏻👶🏻 10 weeks! 2.5 months! let's chat.⁣ 🙏🏼

rio is much like luca. he loves to be held and needs more touch or movement to fall back asleep. he loves to stare at things in a serious way, especially high-contrast art for babies, so I love reading him books while I hold him (he's the best snuggler.)⁣

sol is my chill boy. he's a good sleeper. he smiles and loves to talk. he's squealing and making his goo-goo-ga-ga sounds all the time, I love chatting with him. he's a bit more like roma as a baby, a bit more independent. he makes the funniest faces and serves up the grimaces like luca used to.⁣

what's funny about twins is that just when you think you know their personality differences, they change - they'll swap. 🤷🏻‍♀️ and to tell them physically apart, there are two key differences:⁣
⏺ rio has a wider head and sol has a more narrow, round forehead⁣
⏺ rio weighs a full pound more than sol⁣

and yes, I have mixed them up a few times! I've been carrying one around, talking to them by name, and then all of a sudden, when I go to pick the other one up, I realize I mixed them up! 😱when they're not together or you're not looking at them straight on, it can be confusing! one of my favorite games is texting my family photos of them and saying, "who's who?!" they get it right 50% of the time, ha!⁣

so far, having twins is just so cool. it's so cool that there are two of them and they are identical! every week that goes by, their personalities shine and I am having so much fun getting to know them - and getting twice the cuddles. and yes, they do sometimes cry at the same exact time, but you just have to pause, gather yourself, and get your soothing game on.⁣ 💪🏼

I have to say, while having newborn twins and 2 other older kids at the same time has its challenges, I give a LOT of credit to those who have twins as their first baby experience - I can't imagine going into this not knowing what I already knew about raising babies. talk about overwhelming! 🤯 all moms are crushing it, but especially those first time moms with multiples - woop! bless you. 👏🏼 #identicaltwinboys #identicaltwins #monoditwins #twinmom #twinboys
