I am on another lettuce wrap kick which actually is working out perfectly while I am participating in my Spring Clean Eating Challenge. This challenge basically means that for 30 days I am eliminating all dairy (except eggs) grains, legumes, vegetable oils, processed foods, and added sugar. I have to say that while I thought this challenge would be difficult it really hasn’t been at all and I have found myself to be really enjoying it.

For last nights dinner we decided to go the Fish Taco route, however since we are not consuming grains during this challenge we had to get a little bit creative. Instantly I knew that I wanted to make a Fish Lettuce Wrap “Taco” and got to thinking about what other ingredients we could add to make this pretty reminiscent  of your typical Fish Taco, just without the shell.
