Baked (not fried), and served with fresh grapefruit, creamy avocado, and a tangy cabbage slaw. | platingsandpairings.comIt’s official – We closed on our new house and the movers are coming this weekend! Which means things are crazy around here. I’m loading up the car each day and slowly moving small loads over twice a day – Once on my lunch break, and once in the evening, after the rush hour traffic has called it quits for the night. And can I just say – The kitchen is a major pain! SO much stuff. And really, you have no idea where things should go until you really start cooking in there. So for now, I’m just winging it. I’m fully anticipating that things will get moved around again in a few weeks.

In this busy time, Hello Fresh has been a lifesaver. Especially since they only deliver the ingredients we need, meaning no need to move lots of leftover ingredients to the new house. It means we don’t have to eat out every night and I still get my cooking time in – It’s my way to de-stress each night.

These Grapefruit & Avocado Fish Tacos were one of the meals in my box this week. I had no plans to photograph them, and write this post, but they were just too pretty and delicious not to share.

I love how the bright, tangy slaw, the creamy avocado, and the tart grapefruit combine so perfectly together. Just for a minute, the sea of moving boxes disappears and instead, it feels like we’re munching away on fish tacos on the Gulf of Mexico. Uno mas cerveza por favor.

    I am not always a huge grapefruit fan, but these look amazing!!! I’m definitely going to have to try them. Thanks for the recipe.

      Of course – I hope you enjoy Ashley! They’d be great without the grapefruit as well.

    My biggest tip for a smooth move is definitely labeling everything and putting your most used loved things in special marked boxes you will be able to find quickly to get to them! That, and getting movers which you already have!

    Congrats on the new house! We just bought and moved in January. UGH! Pech’s advice is great- I’m missing a few things that are still in boxes in the garage. Just haven’t had time to go hunting for them. And we’re getting our first Hello Fresh box next week. Don’t you just love subscription meal deliveries?

      I absolutely love subscription meal services – I’ve tried a lot of them, and I tend to lean towards Hello Fresh – I usually like their menu choices the best.
