Salmon is a healthy fish but sometimes parents really struggle to get their kids to eat it. Kids can be very picky about food and some salmon recipes are too savory, too spicy or just not appealing to the little ones. The following recipe is different. We are adding parmesan to the fish and serving the filets with hot mashed potatoes to make their little mouths water!
Add some cauliflower cheese or corn to the plate and you have a complete meal which the kids should really enjoy. Feel free to swap the mashed potatoes for sweet potato fries or even some pasta tossed in a little tomato sauce or basil pesto if your child prefers that. The salmon could even be switched for cod, tilapia or another favorite if you wanted to use something else. The parmesan and herb flavors suit any kind of fish filets.
If you prefer to broil the fish rather than baking it, it will take about 3 minutes per side. The exact cooking time, regardless of which cooking method you use, depends on the thickness of the fish filets. Once the salmon is opaque all the way through and no longer glossy, and you can flake it easily with a fork, it is done. Serve it on a bed of mashed potato and add some kind of vegetable side dish, and this is sure to become a dish not only the kids ask for again but you want to make again and again, because it tastes so good.
