Ingredients

  • Flaky white fish, tomatoes, jalapeños, cilantro and lime topped with avocado. A fresh and flavorful way to spice up fish, quick enough to make for a busy weeknight!
  • I like it spicy, so I chop up the jalapeños whole, seeds and all but you can tone it down to suit your taste. The avocado raises the fat in this dish, but it's all good healthy fats you want in your body, the saturated fat is under 2 grams per serving.
  • Serve this meal with a Skinnygirl margarita and some salsa music in the background and let the fiesta begin!
