Paleo, Whole30, or just plain delicious? You decide!

Bowls being “the new black” nowadays, there’s no better way to feed your taco-jones than with these savory southwestern flavors. Bonus: our barramundi has a naturally buttery flavor and mild aroma, so this dish is even suitable for work!

  1. Step 1Make the creamy cashew-chili sauce first, as the cashews need time to prepare. If time is a factor, you may instead purchase sprouted (pre-soaked) cashews, available at Whole Foods Market and other retailers.
  2. Step 2If starting from scratch, soak raw cashews in boiling water for 2 hours. Drain and rinse well with cold water. Let drain thoroughly.
  3. Step 3Add cashews and the rest of the ingredients to a high speed blender. Blend on high speed until it looks smooth and creamy. Depending on what type of blender you have, you may need to scrape down the sides a few times.
  4. Step 4Rinse the barramundi fillets with cold water and pat dry very well. Set to rest on a cutting board.
  5. Step 5Combine the rest of the fish ingredients in a small bowl and whisk to combine. Using a brush or your hands, cover the filets evenly with the marinade.
  6. Step 6Heat a large frying pan on medium heat for 1 minute. Add oil and cook both filets for about 3 minutes on the first side and 2 minutes after flipping them over. You will notice they are flaky when touched with a fork. Remove the pan from the heat and set aside.
  7. To Serve: Layer some leafy greens or lettuce leaves in a bowl with cooked cauliflower rice. Top off with fish filets and desired toppings. Serve right away.
