It's true, Florida is known for turning out some very bizarre news stories (as you may have seen on The Late Show with Seth Meyers
). But we're also known for producing great fish, citrus, fruit & vegetables. This recipe has a distinctly Florida flair - and in keeping with our focus on health during Women's Heart Health Month, it's a perfect combination of lean protein, vegetables and healthy fat (the avocado). Enjoy!
