My 3-year-old (who is the picky one) even had a second helping. This was after at least a dozen failed seafood attempts, but in the end it was worth it.
I am sure the fish being covered in almonds and a butter sauce had a lot to do with it, but who cares because the point is my preschooler ate fish, she liked it, and most importantly she knew about it. She even said the words “more fish please”, which means she thinks she likes something called “fish” now!
I think some parents have to be careful about how much they “hide” the good stuff in their kids’ food because the real battle is getting them to accept it. Sure, I hide veggies sometimes too, but I work even harder at making food so they’ll knowingly eat it and like it. And this recipe was a definitely success in that department!
