In this instructable I will show you how to make healthy fresh fish and shrimp cauliflower tacos. Quite a mouthful but wait until you get a taste of it.

What do you need to make healthy fresh fish and shrimp cauliflower tacos. First of all you need fish and shrimps. For this recipe I use cod filet. A great fish that is firm and full of flavor and with filets you do not get the fish bones. I also use big shrimps in this dish mostly because in my opinion you can’t go wrong with shrimps whether it is small or big shrimps. To tie these two ingredients together I add pointed head cabbage and sliced in ultra thin like spaghetti. No recipe without onion and garlic and today is no exception. Then some spices and hot sauce and your taco filling is done.

For the tacos I use creamy cauliflower tacos. You can make these tacos by following my previous instructable. They do not taste anything like cauliflower. The structure of these tacos combines really well the fish and the vegetables as the tacos are so more soft (they are not called dreamy creamy tacos for nothing). If you do not have cauliflower tacos no problem you can also choose to use (store-bought or homemade) corn tortillas or crunchy corn tacos. It will still taste great.

You can eat the tacos with some Tex-mex rice (see instructable), a perfect side dish for this recipe. This is a one pot recipe and you just combine the ingredients and let it come together. It is a spicy dish and can be eaten as a main dish all by itself. So there you have it a really wholesome, tasteful, simple, fast taco dinner.
