So I really love fish and I would love to work it into a dinner sometime, but neither of my sons enjoy any type of fish....not even fishticks lol....I was wondering if maybe there was a flavoraful kid friendly fish dish? (Tehehe that rhymed) :blushing:

  • Salmon, salmon, salmon!

    My favourite ways to prepare it are sprinkled with lemon juice and dill and grilled or lightly glazed with teriyaki sauce and baked.

    Salmon doesn't have that "fishy" flavour, really, and it's more meaty than fishy in texture. I loved it growing up.
  • Salmon is a good one.

    The best though, is Swordfish. You barely have to season it, and then just squeeze lemon juice, salt, and pepper on it at the dinner table, and it's amazing. It has to be really fresh though, or it starts to have a fishy taste. They're like the steak of the sea though, for lack of a less cheesy description.

    I got it to work with my son by starting with a white delicate fish...tilapia....very easy to prepare, and super mild non-fishy taste. Then, I worked up to salmon with him, but I found that you need to get wild caught salmon...the farmed stuff isnt as healthy for you (too much omega 6) and the wild caught has a better flavor, in my experience anyway.

    From someone who doesn't really like fish - I kinda like beer battered and fried fish but that's not an option!

    I don't like Salmon, I've had good and bad tilapia-i actually like mahi mahi.....you could dip in egg white roll in seasoned panko bread crumbs and oven bake - give them a sauce that's their fav to dip!

    At our house - it's me who's the picky one with fish! If it's got a shell I LOVE IT - clams, oysters, lobster, crab...mmmmmm.

    There's more mercury in farmed fish too.*


    *Course, this is coming from the person who suggested Swordfish, so meh. As long as you aren't eating any of them every day, it's actually not a problem.

    I really like this fish taco recipe:
    http://find.myrecipes.com/recipes/recipefinder.dyn?action=displayRecipe&recipe_id=1559245

    I make it with Tilapia, and I use cabbage, carrot, and broccoli slaw instead of straight cabbage for a good crunch, but it's not bad with lettuce, either.

    I was skeptical of fish in tacos, too, but after having that recipe... I swear - I would eat those every day.
    Make sure to stick to the seasoning recipe. I think the Smoked Paprika is an important complement to the lime in the sauce.

    Do you by chance have a Trader Joe's near you? If so, they make really good Tilapia Citronette. My two kids and I will have that with a side of vegetables or fruit when hubby is working. Kids weren't crazy about fish, but this they actually ask for.
