  • 1½ pounds skinless tilapia, or other whitefish fillets
  • 2 large avocados, (one will be served as garnish)
  • Juice from 4 fresh limes (about 8 ounces)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon mayonnaise
  • 1 small bunch radishes, thinly sliced
  • 3 scallions, thinly sliced
  • 1 bunch fresh cilantro leaves, finely chopped
  • ½ jalapeño chile (ribs and seeds removed, for less heat), minced
  • ¼ teaspoon ground coriander
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin
  • 10 corn tortillas (6-inch)
  • 2 ounces Cotija cheese, crumbled
  • ½ medium red onion, quartered and sliced thin
  • 2 cups of green or red cabbage, cored and thinly sliced
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper

Directions:
In a blender, combine avocado, one-third of the cilantro, 2 tablespoons lime juice, 2 tablespoons mayonnaise, and 2 tablespoons water; season with salt and pepper. Blend until smooth. Transfer into a small bowl, and set aside. Add more lime juice and/or water as needed.

Combine the cabbage, onion, and one-third of the cilantro in a large bowl and squeeze a lime half over it. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon olive oil, season with salt and pepper, and toss to combine. Add salt and pepper to taste; set aside.

Heat tortillas individually in a pan over medium heat. Heat each tortilla until soft and transfer onto aluminum foil. Wrap until serving time.

In a large nonstick skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil and two jalapeño halves over medium-high heat; swirl to coat bottom of pan.

Season fish on both sides with ground cumin and coriander, salt and pepper.

Cook fish in two batches (starting with larger pieces) until golden brown on all sides, 5 to 6 minutes. Discard jalapeño. Add a splash of additional oil as needed.

When fish is done, place into warm tortillas, top with salsa verde and serve with cabbage, onion mix and garnish of lime, green onion, radish, cilantro, avocado, crumbled cotija cheese, and additional salsa as desired.

I'm still really new to all this but is it common to have trouble with sleep? I swear since my symptoms got really bad a few months ago I can't get 1 good nights sleep, like a 5 hour stretch is doing real good. Wake up at 3am wide awake almost every night. Told my doctor and they've recommended melatonin, that doesn't work. Tried chamomile and lavender tea, no help. Tried zzquil, that will knock me out but maybe for like an extra hour then I'm really drowsy the next morning from it. I don't know what to do.

I have 2 copies of DQ9. One from each parent.

Obviously from the outside it's difficult to comment, but if I were you I'd leave allergies for now and pursue definitive celiac testing via your doctor and preferably a gastroenterologist. They're the first port of call for digestion issues. If you do wind up being celiac it's possible that other allergies or intolerances would resolve or improve in any case once you've been on the diet for awhile. That's been my experience. Ps note that wheat allergy is completely different and unrelated to celiac or non celiac gluten sensitivity.

Thank you ps, it may be better if the thread title was changed as we now have two 'overwhelmed' topics. If it were 'Bile ducts and celiac?' then it may attract more users with direct experience?

Hello and welcome Maybe? From reading others accounts there's a big variation in how quickly gluten antibodies respond to the gluten diet. I did similar to you and my doctor said that 1 week back on should be enough to show up in a test, but he didn't know what he was talking about sadly... The 2 week figure refers to the endoscopy, for blood testing 8-12 weeks on gluten is more normal. Basically if it comes back positive fine you have your answer. If its negative it may be a false negative due to your going gluten free beforehand. If you want to pursue a diagnosis then yes. Don't go off gluten again until you confirm that all testing is complete. Keep a journal noting any symptoms, that may be useful to you later. More info here: There's some good info in the site faq: https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/announcement/3-frequently-asked-questions-about-celiac-disease/ I know how you feel! Partway through my gluten challenge I knew that too results notwithstanding. Fwiw I think you've found your answer. Good luck!
