Recently, I’ve been trying to eat a little healthier. You know the drill, it was the holidays, and I have put on some weight. Blah blah blah. On top of that, I have been sick these last few months, and exercising just hasn’t been happening! I am trying to do something about this now before I have to buy a whole new wardrobe!
Also, since I started eating gluten again, I have been eating carbs carbs carbs. Probably just from not having it for so long, I have been overdoing it. So, I decided to go somewhat low carb. I never was able to do a low carb diet before, because I just love my carbs so much! I am trying to focus on protein and veggies. Because lets face it, I really don’t think I eat enough veggies.
This salad – surprisingly (to me) – was very filling! It is a very clean eating salad, and I felt great after eating it – not too full or stuffed. The lime juice in the dressing really made the flavors “pop” and added a little punch to the salad!
White Fish Salad with Garlic Lime Dressing
Print this recipe!
White fish (tilapia, mahi, cod)
Smoked paprika, salt, pepper
Romaine lettuce, chopped
Bell peppers, chopped
Red onion, chopped
Optional: corn, avocado, cheese, tomatoes
1 lime, juiced and zested (about 1/4 cup lime juice)
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced
salt/pepper to taste
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Place the fish on a baking sheet, and sprinkle with smoked paprika, salt and pepper. Flip over the season the other side as well. Bake for 10-15 minutes, or until the fish flakes easily.
Place all your salad ingredients in a serving bowl. I was a little short on veggies, so I only used lettuce, bell peppers, and red onion. Add whatever you have!
While waiting for the fish to cook, prepare the dressing. Place all ingredients in a small jar and whisk well to combine.
Add the fish on top of the salad, add dressing, and eat!
Even if you aren’t trying to lose some weight, I think you would like this salad! I did add some cheese to my husbands salad, but mine was fine without it!
Meanwhile, Sammy isn’t feeling so hot today. Poor little dude! I’m off to snuggle a little bit!
