Cilantro Halibut Wraps and Paleo Key Lime Mousse

My FIRST food blog post!  Are you salivating with excitement?  No?  Well…  my goal is to have you drooling by the end of this post because I’ve got some great food to show you.

Our main course for lunch today was Cilantro Halibut Wraps.

What you need:

2 halibut filets

1 small handful fresh cilantro

juice of 1 lime

salt and pepper to taste

a small amount of oil for baking halibut (I used coconut)

Romaine lettuce leaves


Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  Spread oil in the bottom of a baking dish and place halibut filets in the dish.  Bake until the fish flakes with a fork.  (Mine took about 20 minutes, but it might not have been completely thawed when I started.  Check after 10 minutes.)

The halibut baking in my oven...

While the halibut bakes, prepare the cilantro seasoning.

Finely chop cilantro and place in a large mixing bowl.  Combine with salt, pepper, and lime juice.

When halibut is done, remove from oven and break into chunks with a fork.  Toss with cilantro mixture in the bowl.

Scoop into Romaine lettuce leaves and enjoy… taco style!

While this was quite delicious, I must admit that if I were to do it over again, I would make the addition of finely diced red onion to give it a little more “bite”.  All in all, however, it was fantastic.

While I don’t often do desserts, I figured a FIRST FOOD BLOG POST was a special occasion.  So I tailored a recipe I found a few years ago to make it paleo.  Here you have it – Paleo Key Lime Mousse:

What you need:

2 avocados

2 very ripe bananas

juice of one lime

fresh berries for garnish (I used blueberries, but raspberries or strawberries would also be quite delicious!)

Place all ingredients except berries in a blender and combine until the texture is smooth and creamy.  Pour into dishes and sprinkle berries on top.  It’s really that easy!

  1. Thank you SO MUCH for this recipe! I made the fish (using tilapia since that’s what I had on hand) today for lunch and it was delicious! Both of my kids loved it, too. Seeing my 4 year old gobbling up lettuce and hearing her rave, “Mommy, this is sooooo good! YUM!” does my heart good. And best of all, it was super easy! I spent 5 minutes doing prep and the rest took care of itself while I showered. What an all around win!

  2. You are so welcome! Even my 15 month old gobbled it up (minus the lettuce… he’d not quite ready for that yet). 🙂
