Keep it Simple
One of the difficulties that many people have when it comes to picky eating around fish is the flavor profile. Many picky eaters tend to prefer more simple flavors instead of bold spices and seasonings. Because of this, keeping any fish meal simple, rather than complex, is key. For example, classic fish tacos are a simple and delicious way to convince your picky eater to taste fish.
Try to Fry
Though it’s not the healthiest option on the list, fried foods are always a crowd favorite. If you can’t find another way for the picky eater at your dinner table to taste the fish, consider trying a lightly fried fish. Gently seasoned with light herbs and butter, a fried fish pairs well with sides of vegetables, french fries, and any other side that you whip up for dinner. It’s the perfect way to first introduce someone to the world of fish!
Load Up the Sides
Distraction is a key aspect of convincing picky eaters to taste the dish. One of the best ways to do so is to add a bunch of delicious sides to the plate. This way, they see that all of the other food is tasty, too! Make sure to include enough sides to satisfy, but not to fill them up. If too many side dishes are provided, your picky eater can use being full as an excuse to not taste your perfectly cooked fish!
Sometimes, fish serving size can be intimidating. By plating your fish creatively, picky eaters may be more enticed to try the food in front of them. Another key to the presentation of fish is disguise. For example, serving up a plate of fish nuggets or fish fingers on fished shaped paper plates can do just the trick.
