The Best Bay Tacos Recipe

Categories
Blog

I cook a lot.  Just about everything that goes into my tummy has some element taken from my garden or has been formed in some way with my own hands.  And while perhaps 3/4ths of my diet is raw (including eggs), I have approached life with a semi-flexitarian nutrition plan because a few months ago my hemoglobin levels were at an all-time low. Anemia is actually pretty common in people with scoliosis, but I saw my doctor about it immediately. She suggested something in addition to iron supplements and lots of spinach that I hadn’t yet thought of.

Meat!

The average American, she told me, eats 4 hamburgers a week!

I was eating about 4 hamburgers a year…

Oops.

One of the things I really like to tackle is my Best Bay Tacos Recipe: mostly because it’s been a huge hit with everyone who’s tried it (and who doesn’t like to be complimented on their cooking? 🙂 )

They’re protein-rich, super filling and actually really good for you!   To help out my hemoglobin, I make these maybe once a week, and I’m more than happy to share my Best Bay Tacos Recipe with you! You can substitute with any meat or vegan meat alternative you wish.

1.  I like to dice up my veggies first.  There have been many ways discussed on how to properly dissect an avocado, but a ripe avocado should easily come out on it’s own after being sliced in the middle.  🙂

2. Preheat Oven to 350 Degrees.  Season Fish with Coconut Oil and leave in for 30 ins.

3. Combine Olive Oil, Thyme, Rosemary, Shrimp in Saucepan.  Season with Fresh Lemon until blackened.

 4. Remove Cooked Fish from oven, top with Flaxseed oil ( I prefer this way because adding the Flaxseed before runs you the risk of losing the Flaxseed nutrients during the cooking process) Allow to cool. Dice fish.

5. Place into Taco Shells in the following order: Organic Fish, Onions, Lettuce, Tomatoes, Shrimp, then Avocado

6. Top with Sour Cream and Soy Cheese.  Enjoy delightfully! 🙂
