Eating fresh veggies is a pleasure in the summertime and its abundance lends itself to eating healthy. After a very food-heavy weekend, I wanted to ensure I treat my body right this week by preparing nourishing, clean food. Here's where this delicious fish dish comes in. Originally calling for salmon, I substituted with tilapia and topped it with a wonderfully spicy corn salsa, sauteed just briefly over high heat. The recipe calls for using red pepper flakes, which definitely bring up the heat factor - and I think I used a little more than what was asked for. Yum! It created a nice fiery taste that had a kick but didn't hurt the tastebuds.
As you can tell from the above shot, I added avocado slices to the recipe as well, which I think work well with corn. Overall, the dish took about 20 minutes to put together and what was even better was that I didn't feel weighed down or overstuffed after. It's a win win and I urge you to substitute tilapia or salmon with the protein of your choice.
