I love making fish taco bowls. One of my first recipes was a fish taco bowl. But I wanted to share a grilled version that keeps you out of the kitchen and in front of your grill.

The tilapia filets are coated with some salt and pepper, cumin and smoked paprika. Just enough for some flavor.

But, you gotta l leave enough room for the creamy cilantro aioli!

My favorite way to make rice is adding a little butter, salt and some lime juice and cilantro. It goes great with a lot of mexican/baja style dishes.

And the kids absolutely love it. Both of our children are rice monsters, but love it seasoned!

If you’re in a mood that requires the change up of a taco, you need do a grilled fish taco bowl.
