Salmon recipes for kids
You can find salmon recipes that are easy to cook with simple flavours that kids will love. These salmon recipes include salmon pasta.
When I was a kid the only way anyone would get salmon was in a tin and then we’d just use it to make a sandwich. But these days you can find it on every menu, in the chiller at the supermarket, at your local sushi place and now on your dinner table!
Why eat salmon?
Salmon is brain food and packed full of Omega-3 fatty acids, which are not produced naturally by the body – you have to get them in your diet. Omega-3 fatty acids have anti-inflammatory properties, are thought to lower triglycerides and help with rheumatoid arthritis and depression. Australian dietary guidelines recommend we eat two or more servings of fish per week. You’ll get your whole daily Omega-3 requirements from just two serves a week.
Ways to cook salmon?
Salmon is really easy to prepare and as fast – if not faster – to cook than chicken or beef. You can steam it, pan fry it, poach in stock, bake it in foil or baking paper or just grill it.
Ways to get my kids to eat salmon?
Kids love salmon because it has a mild flavour and goes perfectly with sweet sauces like Teriyaki and Hoisin. Smoked salmon is the perfect partner for creamy pasta dishes and you don’t even have to cook it – you can just stir it through. It’s fast and simple. Tinned salmon is a great pantry staple and you can team it with potatoes to make perfect kid-sized fish cakes. It’s a really versatile type of fish without being too fishy.
Salmon is a busy mum’s best friend. These salmon recipes tick all the boxes for a healthy and easy meal that kids will actually eat.
