Sort of Like Fish Tacos

The weather has been unseasonably beautiful. I had to work late last night but stepped out to grab a breath of fresh air at one point. When I stepped out, I smelt the ever-so-wonderful aroma of a barbecue. With that, I knew we  absolutely needed to grill something up for dinner. I had tilapia defrosting in the fridge which I had been planning to make for dinner. As soon as I got home from work, we cranked on the grill!

The tilapia was seasoned simply with salt and pepper. We grilled the tilapia for about 4 minutes on each side. To top the tilapia, I made a homemade Pico De Gallo. I don’t have the exact measurements for the pico but here are the ingredients:

  • Roma tomatoes
  • Red onion
  • Cilantro
  • Lime juice
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Garlic
  • Garlic powder
  • Onion powder

As a side dish, I cut a head of green cabbage into wedges. I placed each wedge onto a piece of aluminum foil sprayed with cooking spray. I sprinkled each wedge with salt, pepper, and garlic powder, wrapped each piece individually and placed on the grill. We grilled the cabbage for about 15 minutes (or less), turning every 5 minutes. We plated the tilapia and the cabbage, topped the tilapia with the colorful tomatoes, and dinner was served.

It was a very simple dinner and pretty darn delicious. I had never grilled cabbage before but really liked how it turned out. It is slightly tender and renders a different flavor from the grill. I ended up taking wedges of the cabbage, topping them with a little piece of fish and pico, and wrapped it up to make mini taco bites. It was messy but so worth it. It reminded me of fish tacos that I ate in California but with no shell. Num!

The rest of the night was spent watching Whitney and Modern Family, as always, our Wednesday shows. I was hungry for a snack a couple of hours after dinner so I made myself a bowl of greek yogurt and cereal. It was the perfect snack to end the night.

Now, I am eating my breakfast which resembles last night snack  minus the fiber one squares and plus a banana. I had a serious hankering for cereal this morning. I had a couple of bowls.

On Thursday mornings I usually get up early to get a run in before work, but I am fighting either a cold or allergies and my body wanted the little bit of extra sleep today instead. So that is what it got. I listened.

Off to tackle the day. Have a good one!
