069ada18896da962511d6636e85a91c4

Ingredients:

  • 4 lettuce cups (romaine leaves)
  • 4 fillets firm white fish, or use shrimp
  • 1 ½ cups red cabbage, sliced thin
  • 1 Tbsp rice vinegar 1 red chili pepper, seeded, chopped
  • 2 Tbsp fresh mint leaves, chopped
  • 2 Tbsp fresh cilantro leaves, chopped
  • 2 tomatoes, diced
  • Guacamole:
  • 1 large avocado, skin and pit removed
  • 1 small red chili pepper, seeded and chopped
  •  Juice of 1 lime
  • 1 Tbsp fresh cilantro, chopped

Preparation:

  1. Make the guacamole: Mash the avocado, then add the red chili pepper, lime juice and cilantro. Season with salt and pepper and set aside.
  2. To cook the fish: Place the fish fillets in a large steamer basket over boiling water. Cover and steam about 10 minutes. Maybe 15. Remove and slice into thirds.
  3. While the fish is cooking, toss the cabbage with the rice vinegar, chili pepper and herbs.
  4. To assemble the tacos, add some of the cabbage to the bottom of the lettuce cup. Top with pieces of the fish, diced tomato and a dollop of guacamole.

*Steaming is a great way to cook fish because it allows the flavors of the fish to really stand out. All fish can be steamed; it’s an almost foolproof technique for keeping the flesh moist. Adding herbs or spices to the steamer infuses those flavors into the fish. You can also poach the fish or even gently pan fry in a small amount of coconut oil.

*Sprouted Brown Rice

Sprouting is germination – a process when all the vitamins, proteins, minerals and fatty acids dormant in raw seeds, grains and beans, activate and multiply. The only way to induce sprouting is to soak them in filtered water, then allow time for them to grow. Sprouting also eliminates certain acids and toxins in plant life that would otherwise interfere with our digestion.

Sprouting Rice:

  1. Place raw rice in a large bowl and cover completely with cold filtered water.
  2. Soak for 10 hours.
  3. After soaking period, drain the rice and return to bowl. Place in the refrigerator overnight.
  4. The next day, rinse the rice with water and swirl around in the bowl after draining. Place back in the frig.
  5. On day 3, repeat the rinsing/swirling process and then return to the fridge overnight. Repeat this system until the rice sprouts a “tail”.
  6. Rice takes about 4 days to sprout. Once the sprouting time passes, you can keep in the fridge up to 3 days.
