Who else is a fan of mixing all of the flavors? I’m the type of person that gets all the toppings on my Chipotle burrito bowl. The more the merrier! These Sweet and Smokey Fish Rice Bowls are loaded with different flavors and textures and they are a perfect summer staple!

The fish is sweet with a hint of smokiness from the paprika. I recommend using tilapia in this recipe because it holds together pretty well (not as flakey as some other white fish), soaks up a lot of flavor and gets a crispy outside when pan fried.

These bowls combine a bunch of my favorite blog recipes! Start with my favorite Cilantro Lime Rice as the base. Top with the sweet & smokey tilapia, pineapple mango salsa, guacamole, plantains, fresh radish slices and sour cream!
