Fish and other seafood has always been a big part of my diet. Growing up in Rhode Island, I had access to some of the freshest seafood available, some of which was caught by my dad. I grew up with it, so I never thought about it being something that wasn't kid-friendly.
Until I had my own kids. Fish just isn't something they are interested in eating. But fish, especially fatty fish, contains Omega-3s which are so important for brain, heart, and eye development and health. So, it's important that I get my kids to eat foods rich in Omega-3s - even if it isn't easy.
One of my favorite recipes growing up was salmon and rice, and it's definitely a kid-friendly recipe that doesn't have a strong fishy taste. To prepare it, you'll need:
A few teaspoons of tomato paste
Salt and paper to taste
four cups of rice
14-oz of cooked salmon (you can use canned salmon)
Prepare the rice according to the directions and add the salmon. Stir in the tomato paste slowly, then add salt and pepper to taste.
This recipe is easy to prepare and tastes great!
