Clean Eating Fish Quinoa Rice Bowls

I am limiting my carbs and upping the protein and veggies because I am doing a MMA style workout program. I am working so hard and don't want to mess up my results with my food choices. Sometimes you NEED comfort food. I have found this to hit the spot. It is refreshing, but also filling and comforting. I don't miss the shell one bit. I do a blend of quinoa and brown rice for my one carb and it is yummy all while adding extra protein.

a pinch of salt

For the avocado cucumber salsa:
1 red onion, diced
1 avocado, halved, pitted, peeled, and diced
1 small cucumber, diced
3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
the juice of 1 lime

For the fish:
1 lb snapper fish fillet or other white fish
2 tablespoons olive or avocado oil
1/4 cup coconut flour
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon chili powder
¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper (adjust to taste)
To assemble:
1 cup cooked brown rice
1 cup cooked quinoa
1 cup shredded cabbage
fresh cilantro, finely chopped
lime wedges
Cilantro lime crema:
Combine all the ingredients for the crema in a blender and blend until smooth. Pour the crema in a bowl, cover and refrigerate until ready to use.

Avocado cucumber salsa:
Place the cucumber, avocado, red onion and cilantro in a bowl. Drizzle with lime juice and season to taste. Mix it gently and set aside.

Pat the fish fillets dry with paper towels. Combine the flour and spices in a shallow dish.
Dredge each piece of fish in the flour mixture.
Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the fish to the skillet and cook for about 3 minutes on each side. Remove the fish from the skillet and shred with a couple of forks.
To serve, divide the rice between 4 bowls then add the toppings: fish, shredded cabbage, and avocado cucumber salsa. Drizzle the cilantro lime crema, sprinkle the chopped cilantro and serve with lime wedges.
