The summertime usually means lots of beer, fried foods, cheesy dips, and hot wings doused in ranch dressing.

If you are currently cleansing, you can feel free to use our Buffalo Cauliflower recipe instead!
You'll love the taste of this Thai fish recipe. We've served it over brown rice to give you a balanced and meal, as the brown rice will soak up the rich, coconut sauce and you'll experience a burst of flavor with each bite.
