Fish Recipes For Picky Eaters
Some people don’t eat much fish and are generally picky eaters. So, take a look at the following fish recipes for picky eaters. This is frequently due to the fragrance, texture, or flavour of fish and the unfamiliarity with preparing fish-based meals. Because tilapia has a moderate flavour and texture similar to chicken, it’s a nice fish to give a try if you’ve given up seafood for good.

Tilapia fillets (1 pound) or other thin fish fillets
Freshly ground pepper and kosher salt
Three peeled and crushed garlic cloves
One inch of grated fresh ginger (about one tablespoon)
One jalapeno pepper, chopped roughly (optional)
1/3 cup cilantro leaves, coarsely chopped
A quarter cup of white wine
Two tbsp soy sauce (optional) (or gluten-free tamari)
One tbsp sesame seed oil
Scallions, finely sliced to use as a garnish
Garnish with more cilantro
Preheat the oven to 475 degrees Fahrenheit. Dry the fish and place it in a 9-inch or 8-inch ceramic or glass baking dish, seasoning liberally with salt and pepper.
Combine the garlic, grated ginger, chopped jalapeno, cilantro, white wine, soy sauce, and sesame oil in a small food processor. Blend until smooth. (Alternatively, in a mortar and pestle, finely chop or mash the garlic, ginger, jalapeno, and cilantro, then mix with the liquid ingredients.)
Drizzle the sauce over the fish and gently work it in. Bake for 8–10 minutes, or until the fish flakes easily and is thoroughly cooked. Still, it will be very moist and possibly gelatinous.
Serve immediately with the remaining scallions and cilantro on top of brown rice.
This dish is for you if you prefer your food hot. Tilapia is a very adaptable fish to deal with; it may be pan-fried in minutes or cooked slowly and gently, like in this recipe. The combination of oregano, basil, and chilli powder is delicious! After the fillets have finished cooking on low heat, season them with the mixture and serve with quinoa and sautéed vegetables.
Three fillets of tilapia (about 1 lb)One teaspoon oregano, dry
One teaspoon basil (dried)
Chilli powder (about two tablespoons)
Aquarter teaspoon of salt
Three tablespoons unsalted butter
A quarter-cup of lemon juice
Preheat the oven to 350°F and place the fish in a glass pan. In the microwave, melt the butter and lemon juice together, then pour over the fillets. Add the other ingredients and mix well (vary the amounts of each to your liking). Thirty minutes in the oven.
