  7. When the potatoes are cool, gently mix the dressing into the potatoes and let it sit in the fridge.Processed with VSCO with u5 preset
  8. Next, cook the mackerel on medium heat until it’s soft enough to flake.
  9. Once it’s cooked take it out of the oven and shred the fish using a fork, add some finely cut pomegranate flower, red onions, nutmeg and lime juice. Place it to one side and start on the cauliflower cheese taco shells.Processed with VSCO with u5 preset
  10. Wash the cauliflowers clean and cut into florets.
  11. Grate all of the cauliflower except the bitter stalks.
  12. Using a tightly sealed microwave container, cook the riced cauliflower for five minutes. When it’s done steaming take it out of the microwave, mix it and let it cool until cold.

  14. In a bowl mix the dry cauliflower pulp with eggs, grated mozzarella, salt, and garlic powder, then bind the mixture together with your hands. Processed with VSCO with u5 preset
