20 Minute Dinner: Fish Taco Rice Bowls

If you have these simple ingredients, you have dinner tonight - all done in under 20 minutes!

If you don't have fish, just swap it out for any other kind of protein and you'll still have a fresh, healthy and quick dinner ready in a snap.

All you need for this quick dinner is just a few everyday ingredients and 20 minutes

I used a 10 minute boil-in-a-bag brown rice package, one lime, salt, cilantro, fish, seasonings, tomatoes, lettuce, shredded cheese and salsa - all into a bowl for a healthier version of the fast-food version!

Add whatever else you like to this - black olives, black beans, green chilies, sliced jalepeno...whatever!
