Fishy Fishy!

Can we talk for a minute about how good fish is? I love it for all of its deliciousness as well as its health benefits. Fatty fish like salmon and tuna are chock-full of Omega 3s as well as protein. Goober is not the biggest fan of fish of any kind, but he is becoming more willing to try new things. I made him a Parmesan-Crusted Tilapia once, which he liked. For the health benefits, though, I prefer salmon. I haven’t figured out a way to cook it that I can serve it to Goober yet, though so I only have it when we’re out. Tonight I had a nice piece of plain grilled salmon with a small baked potato and broccoli. My salmon was a little bit bland; I would’ve preferred a ginger glaze or something else to spice it up a little. So what I want to know is, what are some of your favorite healthy fish recipes than can be easily adapted for non-fish-eaters like Goober?


  1. My husband hates salmon, so I hardly ever make it at home, but tilapia is a good mild fish for non-fish eaters. A really easy way to prepare salmon is to put some chopped tomatoes and sliced lemons on the fish, drizzle with olive oil and then wrap in aluminum foil and bake. you can also add any herbs you like for more flavor. start an herb garden for this summer...they're the best for adding flavor with no extra calories. rosemary is awesome on fish and chicken!

    I love this recipe for salmon ( and I can imagine the pesto would be good on chicken too.
