This is my take on the cilantro-lime quinoa bowl from everyone's favorite Mexican-inspired coastal fast food chain. It turned out pretty good. You can season the tilapia or buy the pre-seasoned ones at the market. If you have an Aldi grocery nearby, they have a fresh tilapia seasoned with a Southwest rub, which is perfect for this recipe.

  • Combine paprika, onion powder, salt, black pepper, cayenne pepper, oregano, and garlic powder in a bowl. Rub about 1 tablespoon of the mixture on each side of both tilapia fillets, making sure to use up all the seasoning. Let fillets sit while preparing the quinoa, about 15 minutes.
  • Combine water, quinoa, and salt in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil; cover and reduce heat to low. Cook until quinoa absorbs all the liquid, 12 to 15 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in lime zest, juice, and cilantro. Season with salt.
  • Heat oil in a pan over medium-high heat. Cook tilapia fillets until fish flakes easily with a fork, 2 to 3 minutes per side.
  • Arrange romaine lettuce and spinach over 2 bowls. Divide tilapia, cooked quinoa, black beans, and tomato over the bowls. Top with avocado and pepitas. Serve each portion with a lime wedge.
