Anyone else have a teenager trying out new things? As I recently shared on social media (with the reminder note my daughter gave me … I wouldn’t really believe it until it was in writing, LOL), my 13-year-old daughter has decided she wants to try out being a vegetarian. She will still eat fish though, so technically a “pescatarian” it is!
This honestly came out of nowhere; she is my child who LOVES meat, but I understand this is a time in their lives to try and figure out who they are. Can anyone else relate?
Sooooo, while I am not drastically changing the way the rest of us eat, I am trying to accommodate her request. We already eat a mostly flexitarian diet (meat sometimes), so now on those nights when we do eat meat I just make sure the side items are hearty enough to be eaten on their own. And we’ve also gone from eating seafood roughly once a week to twice a week (or even more!). Thankfully, that’s something we can all still agree on.
So, I’m excited to share my latest seafood dinner creation that is super flavorful and hearty. My girls had a friend over the second time I made it, and even this self-professed picky eater (no sauces, no cheese, etc., etc.) scarfed down this fish and asked for seconds! It’s hard to beat that punch of flavor from blackened seasoning. And, thankfully, it’s not hard to make … enjoy!
