  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 Tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 Tablespoon garlic powder
  • 4 – 4 ounce raw tilapia filets
  • 24 raw shrimp, de-veined and tails off
  • Cooking spray


  • 1 pitted avocado, flesh only
  • 1 chipotle pepper, seeded
  • 1 Tablespoon adobo sauce
  • 5 ounces plain, nonfat Greek yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic, minced
  • ¼ cup pinto beans


  • 4 cups raw spinach leaves
  • ¼ cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 4 lime wedges
  • ½ cup queso fresco, crumbled (make sure gluten free for GF version)


  1. Pre-heat grill to medium-high heat.
  2. In a small bowl, combine all seasonings. Coat fish and shrimp evenly on both sides. Spray grill with cooking spray. Using 4 skewers soaked in water, place 6 shrimp on each skewer. Place tilapia in grilling basket or on piece of foil. Grill shrimp for 2-3 minutes on both sides and fish for 3-4 minutes on both sides. Note: If using grill pan, fish and shrimp can be placed directly on the pan without skewers or foil. Cooking time will be the same.
  3. In a food processor, place all sauce ingredients and blend until smooth.
  4. In a medium bowl, combine ¼ cup sauce with 4 cups of spinach and toss to coat. Place 1 cup spinach on plate, then top with 1 tilapia filet, 6 shrimp, 2 Tablespoons sauce, cilantro, juice of 1 lime wedge and 2 Tablespoons of queso fresco. Repeat with 3 other plates.
