Fish is not really his favorite. But because I'm also on a diet and trying to lessen my meat intake, I tried making my own recipe to make it kid-friendly.
Here's the very simple recipe:
1. Sprinkle the fish (I usually use Dory or Tilapia fillet) with a dash of pepper (I usually don't use salt), ginger (chili flakes for that extra kick) and lemon juice (kalamansi will do as well).
2. Wrap it in foil. I usually add leafy greens, tomatoes and whatever veggies I have in the fridge. The juice in the veggies will add flavor to the fish.
4. Here's how your kids will love it: Top the steamed fish with cream cheese and sprinkle with cheddar cheese.
And even if they don't eat the veggies, the juice from the steamed veggies has seeped in the fish.
Awesome idea or what?
My son loved it by the way.
