Fish Recipes Kids Will Love

Seafood is great for kids! It is a lean protein that is full of important vitamins and nutrients from magnesium to omega-3s. In the winter months, when the sun is rarely out, it is one of the best natural sources of vitamin D.

Getting kids to fall in love with seafood might seem impossible. Though many types of fish and shellfish have a mild flavor, their unique texture can be a turn off for picky eaters. The trick is to start off with recipes with a variety of textures to help your kids get used to the taste and texture of fish. You can convert even the pickiest eater into a seafood lover with these delicious seafood meals.

Recipe By Seafood Crate

SHEET PAN FISH & CHIPS

Fish and chips are as big of a hit with kids as chicken nuggets and French fries. Kids love biting into the crunchy golden batter around the tender white fish, like cod, that is inside. If you don’t have a deep fryer at home, don’t worry! You can make restaurant quality fish and chips in the oven with our recipe for sheet pan fish and chips. If your kids are not a fan of tartar sauce, try an alternative like this copycat recipe of Chick-Fil-A sauce.

FISH TACOS & SHRIMP FAJITAS

The next time you have taco Tuesday with your kids, make fish tacos or shrimp fajitas! The variety of tastes and textures in a taco is a good way to introduce kids to seafood. We use this simple recipe for baked tilapia with mango salsa. Cut up the fish and put it in a flour tortilla for tasty and nutritious fish tacos. Or prepare these grilled margarita shrimp fajitas.

CREAMY SEAFOOD PASTA

If your kids already love pasta, adding in seafood is a great way to convert them into a fish fan. Creamy seafood pasta is one of our favorite recipes for the whole family. The mouthwatering creamy Italian sauce takes less than 10 minutes to make. Toss it with your favorite type of pasta and pan-seared shrimp or scallops for a quick meal that your kids will adore. Like many seafood recipes, you can get this meal on the table in less than 30 minutes.

BACON WRAPPED SCALLOPS

Bacon makes everything better. That is why kids love bacon wrapped scallops. The crispy bacon on the outside gives the scallops a richer flavor and familiar texture. Since scallops are extremely lean and packed with nutrients, they are a healthy option to pair with bacon. Try out our recipe for bacon wrapped scallops! Serve them with a side of rice and salad for an easy, healthful meal.

Once your kids have fallen in love with fish, you can graduate to new recipes like parmesan crusted haddock, sesame-crusted salmon teriyaki, or lemon pepper grilled halibut. Checkout City Fish Markets’ full list of recipes for more ideas!

Don’t forget that picking up fresh fish from a trustworthy fishmonger is just as important as the recipe! Cooking seafood that is past its prime can ruin a whole meal. You don’t want seafood that has a pungent fishy taste or the wrong texture. Stop by City Fish Market for the best quality fresh fish! You can always count on us when seafood is on the menu.

Best fish

Totally in love with your tuna. It's so good to be able to get sushi grade. I made a tuna tataki. Salmon also very good.

First order, excellent products, very impressive

After I placed the order, Baz the manager called me personally to confirm & make sure my order is correct & if I'v any questions, excellent way to connect with his customers, he delivered personally all the way to my downtown condo...nice gentleman! You can track the delivery on the GPS app came with delivery notice in ur cell, so no need to stay home & worry if u gonna missed ur delivery. The order was packed in a strong cardboard box with top, bottom & 4 sides insulation wrap in plastic with pieces of ice in a plastic bag on top to keep my order fresh, the best insulated delivery box I even received. My order is fresh, excellent high quality tasty salomn & tuna Sashimi...I'd it for dinner, nothing else, very filling & satisfying...it was awesome because I ate all of it...lol, yummiest. I haven't try the salmon roe, rainbow trout & the crab meats, planning to stir fry with egg whites & green onion like an omelette, probably steam the trout Chinese style with salmon roe on top, over all 5 stars × 2 to: customer care service, packaging, delivery with a tracking app so u wouldn't missed ur delivery, excellent high quality products, u can't ask for anything more...highly recommended.

Happy Campers

We love seafood and Seafood Crate has given us such a huge opportunity to buy our seafood sustainably while enjoying such a huge variety.
Even my 17 year old son can't wait for the Crate to arrive so he can make himself Lobster Macaroni and Cheese (not a bad after school snack I'd say.
Thank you, thank you, thank you.
