I love a meal made of things that can all be prepped ahead. So when it’s really thrown together, it’s like a dreamy restaurant-worthy dish. But it takes five minutes! The best. These blackened fish bowls with cilantro pepita sauce fit the bill.

What You’ll Need for Blackened Fish Bowls with Cilantro Pepita Sauce: 

Yes, there are a few links up there, but each recipe is pretty simple and AGAIN, once you have the components ready, it’s so easy to build the perfect lunch. Early in the week, I like making the cilantro zucchini rice, blackened Mahi Mahi, corn and peach salad, roasted sweet potatoes, and cilantro pepita dressing. Just pop your leftover blackened fish and sweet potatoes in the air fryer for 2-3 minutes to reheat while you pull everything else out and chop a few tomatoes. Easy!

How to Build your Blackened Fish Bowl with Cilantro Pepita Sauce:

Build your bowl starting with your greens. I prefer using arugula, but mixed greens are also a delicious choice. So, grab whatever you’ve got.

Next, add a scoop of your cilantro zucchini rice. It’s not totally rice, but it’s not just veggies either.  A great base for all your bowls! In this recipe, I love having this on top of greens, topped with air-fried Mahi Mahi

This blackened fish bowl is layered with all of the goodies. You’ve already got your greens, cilantro zucchini rice, and air-fried Mahi Mahi. The next layer in your bowl is corn and peach salad. Peaches have been my summer go-to treat!  But I know they’re not always around, but mango and pineapple swap in beautifully!

After adding peach and corn salad, add your roasted sweet potatoes and cherry tomatoes. Drizzle with cilantro pepita dressing and you’ve yourself a gorgeous macro-friendly meal.

Serving Suggestions:

Try finishing off your bowl with a pinch of pepitas, and optional crumbled cheese. I love dairy-free feta but it’s also delicious with cotija, goat, parmesan, or of course real feta cheese! Squeeze a little fresh lemon on top, season with salt and pepper, and enjoy!
