Fish Wraps and Fresh Guacamole

by Joanne on June 19, 2009

The Apple Crumbles yard is under construction:


We are having a new walkway put in along with a stampcrete area where the rose garden used to be.  We are moving the rose bushes to the front of the house and my herbs to the back garden.  I’ll keep you updated.

A fresh tasting and easy dinner

It doesn’t get much easier than this recipe for fish and guacamole.  You will want to prepare the Guacamole first so it can chill while you work on the fish wraps.

Guacamole – for 2


  • 1 medium Avocado, peeled, pit removed and chopped
  • 1 tsp dried cilantro
  • 1 small spring onions, chopped
  • 1/4 tsp chili powder
  • 1/4 tsp of each: salt and pepper
  • About 6 – 8 grape tomatoes, quartered
  • 1 tsp fresh lime juice

Mix together the avocado, cilantro, onion, chili, salt and pepper. Mash with a potato masher or use a folk until fairly smooth.  There should be a few chunks. Stir in the tomato and lime juice.  Do a taste test.  Need more salt? Need more pepper?  How about lime juice? Add any and all if necessary.  The guacamole will taste so fresh, you’ll never buy it again.

Make sure to grab a SalbaSmart blue corn tortilla chip or two to mop up the leftover guacamole in the mixing bowl:


Fish Wraps – Serves 2 (This recipe was based upon “Fish Fajitas” from cdKitchen.)DSCN1367

  • 1 TBS olive oil
  • 1/2 green bell pepper cut into strips
  • 1/2 red bell pepper cut into strips
  • 1 TBS dried minced onion
  • 1 lb Grouper – cut into 1/2″ strips (let sit in lemon juice about 10 – 30 minutes)
  • 1/4 cup beer
  • 1/4 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 6 Low-Carb Tortillas
  • 1/2 cup Salsa

Heat oil on medium high (make sure pan and oil are good and hot). Add peppers, dried onion and fish. Cook for about 3 minutes. Add the beer and let cook, UNCOVERED for 5-6 minutes – until liquid is absorbed and fish is flaky. Add salt and pepper. Keep warm while you heat the tortillas in a 350 F degree oven, wrapped in foil for about 10 minutes.  Divide fish mixture among tortillas, top with salsa and guacamole.

I put my guacamole inside my wrap and folded it up. Ted preferred to put his guacamole on the outside and dip the wrap into it with each bite. Whatever works for you.

It’s Saranac Thursday in Utica tonight. Whose going? It won’t be us because 1. It’s wet out there and 2. It’s too crowded!    But have fun whatever you do.

    It sounds in full swing over at your garden and it will be lovely to have a herb garden but still keep the beautiful roses too at the front. Those wraps look and sound very temptingly good :0)
