 KIDS FISH MEAL

     A lot of people think kids simply will not eat fish, but it turns out they just weren't serving the right fish to their kids to begin with. Start with a mild-tasting fish, usually a white fish like cod or a familiar fish like salmon, and make it fun. When you take out the "fishy" flavors and smells and add in things they are already used to, it is easy to teach kids to love fish. Even better—let them help prepare the meal! Below, we teach you how to make tasty fish for kids. 

 

Kids Friendly Fish Recipes

 

Yield

This recipe serves 2 people, but can easily be doubled or tripled.

Ingredients

Sauce options

  • 3 – 4 Tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 2 Tbsp chopped chives
  • 2 Tbsp chopped basil
  • Salt and pepper

OR 

  • 1-2 cup lemon juice
  • 2 Tbsp butter, melted
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Directions

  1. Line a shallow baking dish with foil. Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees. Rinse frozen fish under cool, running water to remove any ice glaze. Pat dry with paper towels. Place fish on the foil-lined baking dish. Set aside.
  2. Mix the ingredients of either sauce option together in a small bowl with a fork until completely blended. Cover each fillet with the sauce of your choice.
  3. Bake the fish fillets, uncovered, until the internal temperature reaches 145 degrees. Check the fish after about 15 minutes, then every 5 minutes after that. Fish is done when it is no longer translucent and it flakes easily.

      Cook's tips: Serve these fillets with a side of tater tots or French fries to help tempt your kids to try something new. Add a selection of dipping sauces on the side to further entice them. Kids are usually more willing to try new foods if they were involved in the preparation. Even young children can help with this recipe by stirring and mixing the sauces. Using kid's scissors, they can help cut the chives. Children might also enjoy slathering the sauce over the top of the fish before baking.

Most people when they cook a fish don’t pay much attention to the fish skin other than to make sure it is clean or to throw it away. Some fish dishes utilize cutlets that still have the skin attached, but most people in the US at least are used to skinless fish fillets. That begs the question, can you eat fish skin?
