Fish tacos are a fun and nutritional meal for kids! Tacos always seem to be a kid favorite however it can be a very, very messy meal. Fish is also a great source of protein and healthy omegas!
We tried these last week in our house and it was a quick, easy meal to make plus the Tiny Toddler finished all of it! You can use any type of fish you wish, however I would recommend either Flounder or Salmon.
Flounder is a light fish and low in Saturated Fat. It is also good source of Vitamin D, Niacin, Vitamin B6 Phosphorus and Potassium, and a very good source of Protein, Vitamin B12 and Selenium.
Salmon is low in Sodium. It is also a good source of Riboflavin, Pantothenic Acid and Phosphorus, and a very good source of Protein, Niacin, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12 and Selenium.
I involved my child with the process of preparing the ingredients and then also had him "help" put together his taco. Letting children be a part of the meal preparation makes them feel involved and usually results in the child eating more of the meal (especially for picky eaters).
~ Cook the fish, chopping it up as you go and add seasoning! We used the one that came in our taco box or you can make your own to add your own unique flavoring! (perhaps tropical tacos next time with pineapple???)
~ Make sure to heat up the tacos shells as it will soften them.
~ Once the fish is cooked, assemble the tacos together and Enjoy!
