Non-Traditional Fish Tacos

Introducing new foods into your diet can be intimidating, especially if you haven’t liked these foods in the past. One way to make trying new foods easier is by putting them into tacos. Not only are tacos arguably the most fun of all foods, you can control how much of each ingredient goes into each bite and pair it with other flavors you know you do like. 

These tacos break the norm of traditional fish tacos with ingredients of pickled red onions (sold in stores or easy to make at home) and microgreens. These ingredients add some freshness to the tacos. 

Microgreens are just that- small green vegetables. Microgreens come from a variety of vegetables, picked at about 1-3 weeks after germination. Microgreens are larger and leafier than sprouts, but much smaller than other leafy green vegetables. They are versatile and easy to top on just about any savory food. 

These tiny greens are nutrient-dense! They’re packed with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Microgreens, such as radish, arugula, and broccoli, are known to contain high levels of essential nutrients like vitamins C, E, and K, as well as beta-carotene. One of the most significant compounds found in microgreens, particularly in broccoli microgreens, is sulforaphane. Sulforaphane is a powerful antioxidant that has aids in supporting the body’s natural detoxification.
