-- 1 or 2 red bell peppers, diced

-- 2 tablespoons fresh chopped cilantro, for garnish

 

Marinade

--  ¼ cup fresh lime juice

-- zest of one lime

-- 2 tablespoons olive oil

-- 2 garlic cloves, chopped finely

-- 1/2 crumbled chicken bouillon cube, or 1/2 teaspoon salt

-- Fresh cracked Pepper 

-- 1 teaspoon honey or brown sugar ( optional for low-carb, keto diet)

Instructions
