Cooking seafood can be a bit of a daunting task, especially if you’re trying to please picky eaters. But with a little creativity and patience, it can be easy to whip up a simple yet delicious seafood feast that kids will love. 

If you’re looking for something a little more adventurous, you can try your hand at sushi. It may take some practice to get the rolling technique down, but kids will love the variety of fillings you can choose from. Plus, sushi is a great way to sneak in some extra veggies! 

With the upcoming June holidays right around the corner, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to make nutritious homecooked meals for your kids. 

Here are some recipe ideas that you can enjoy preparing for your kids, so head to your nearest fresh fish market or better yet, order fresh seafood delivery to anywhere in Singapore

Baked Cod  

Looking for an easy and delicious way to cook up some sea bass? This oven-baked recipe is a simple, quick way to prepare this dish.

Start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees. Then, take a tablespoon of olive oil and generously coat the bottom of a baking dish. 

Place your cod fillets in the dish, skin side down. Then, it’s time to season your fish. Sprinkle on some salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Then, give the fillets a squeeze of lemon juice and bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, or until the fish is cooked through. That’s it! 

Pecan Crusted Salmon 

Salmon is an excellent source of protein, omega-3 fatty acids, and antioxidants, making it a nutrient-rich food that can help to improve overall health. 

Omega-3 fatty acids, in particular, are known for their anti-inflammatory properties, and they have been linked to a reduced risk of heart disease, arthritis, and memory decline. 

When it comes to salmon, there are many different ways to prepare it. You can smoke it, bake it, grill it, or even just eat it raw as sashimi. But if you’re looking for a truly unique flavour experience, try pecan-crusted salmon. 

The key to this dish is in the pecans themselves. To get the most flavour, you’ll want to use roasted pecans that have been coarsely chopped. Then, you’ll need to create a mixture of eggs and water that the salmon will be dipped into before being coated with the pecans. The final step is simply to bake the salmon until it is cooked through. The result is a moist and flaky fish with a crunchy, nutty coating. Yum!

Shrimp-Stuffed Baked Potatoes 

This easy recipe comes together in just 30 minutes, making it perfect for a weeknight meal. And who can resist the combination of tender shrimp, creamy potato, and sharp Parmesan cheese? For an extra bit of zing, be sure to add a squeeze of lemon juice before serving. 

Fish Baked With Spinach 

This dish is similar to Florentine eggs, but instead of using eggs, use white fish fillets like haddock or cod. Layer the spinach at the bottom, the fish in the middle, and cream of mushroom soup on top. Finally, add a layer of breadcrumbs and bake for 25 to 30 minutes. 

The crust should be crispy and flaky, and the fish fillets should be tender and cooked to perfection.
