Do you want to build a snowmannnnnnn?
Come on, let’s go and playyy!
Ok, Sorry I’ll stop.
But, for real, you have seen the movie Frozen right?
The huberoni is seriously OBSESSED with this movie you guys. When it first came out he literally watched it like 10 times. It was a good way to occupy him back in the day when I needed to get work done. Just put it on TV and he’s TUNED for that 1.5 hours.
Just like my Mom did to me when I was a baby. TV DOES THE TRICK.
Fast forward 4 years later and he has been bugging me to watch it AGAIN but I am one of those people that only watches movies once, no matter how good it is.
It’s adorable. In a really weird-who-is-my-husband-and-why-does-he-like-childrens-movies-so-much kind of way.
And, now, that song is going to be stuck in both of our heads forever.
Sidenote: Don’t think I am a terrible person who did not enjoy “Frozen” or kids movies. I love them. Only once though.
Now that we’ve talked about winter things and snowmen, let’s talk about all things summer.
I mean, Olaf (the snowman) did have a weird obsession with summer, so it all just makes sense.
In fact, I am dedicating this recipe to him so that I can pretend that it’s not totally awkward to be like SNOWMEN! –> MANGO SALSA!
You see, I never used to like mangoes….I had a bad experience as a child (I ate a rotten one.)
Then Mr. FFF finally forced me to try one when we first got married and I made Vegan coconut curry with sweet potato noodles, to which he said “a mango salsa would be KILLER” on this.
Aaaaand now I want to eat mangoes every day for all the evers that there are left in my life.
So, I will.
Especially if it’s in something tropical flavored. Kiiiinda obsessed with their fruity sweetness in the mango shrimp ceviche recipe!
And I will also eat them in cute little chunks, mixed with other yummy things AND THEN I will put all the goodness over top of these mahi mahi low carb fish taco bowls because after the oven baked mahi mahi with macadamia nut crust, I am SO obsessed with the meaty-ness of this fish!
But, liiike, you don’t even notice the tortilla-sized whole in your life on account of this bowl of goodness being SO TASTY.
How do I make these low carb fish taco bowls even lower carb?
If you want to make this into keto fish tacos, you COULD totally nix the mangoes here and add more avocado in its place. You could even copy the crab avocado salad and serve it IN an avocado!
Real talk: adding avocado to anything is never the wrong move.
If you’re new to cauliflower rice, 1. Where have you been the past 3 years and 2. it’s basically the easiest thing on the planet to make, and it is SO versatile. You can make mango chicken with coconut cauliflower rice, Thai salad and cauliflower rice wraps and even Egg muffins with cauliflower rice
Plus, its veggie packed since it’s…ummm…made from veggies. Riiiiight.
Oh, and you know how I like to make my eyes and belly happy at the same time right?
NAILED IT. Just PEEP all the wholesome-beautiful-VIBRANT color we’ve got jamming around this bowl of Mexican-inspired dinner bliss..
