Cauliflower Rice with Baked Fish

My hubby always remind me do not consume too much white rice as it is very starchy and will increase our blood sugar, making us very sluggish after every meal. One of my friend is on Paleo Diet (diet Paleolithic diet consists mainly of fish, grass-fed pasture raised meats, vegetables, fruit, fungi, roots, and nuts, and excludes grains, legumes, dairy products, salt, refined sugar, and processed oils), and she happens to try out Paleo Rice. So I googled on web and stumble on this recipe instead!

It is indeed very awesome tasty! Very light and refreshing taste especially paired with the baked fish! And no more sluggish feeling compared to intake with same amount of rice!
