So Glad You’re Here!
What’s your kids’ favorite type of fish? Let me guess… Fish Sticks.
Here’s a super yummy recipe that get your kids trying and loving different types of fish. Kids are more likely to try foods that they cook themselves. This recipe for Salmon with Brown Sugar Glaze is the EASIEST plus no one will guess that your little chef made such healthy and delicious dish.
Add salt & pepper to taste. My little chef typically sprinkles salt and pepper with his hands which makes it easier to control the amount he uses as well as getting good coverage over the dish. Be sure to season both sides of the fish.
Next, add the honey mustard and brown sugar to a small mixing bowl
To mix the ingredients in a small bowl, I recommend using a Norpro 7-Inch Mini Whisk which is the perfect size for little hands. Plus, it was very springy and bounces up & down which is super fun to use.
At first tasting, the Step Stool Chef shared that the salmon was a little too bitter. When I tried it… he was right! So he added a bit more brown sugar on the top while it was still warm. The sugar melted on top and added just the right flavor to take away the bitterness.
He was a lot happier with how it turned out and so was I! It’s so important to encourage your little chefs to taste their creations to make sure it tastes the way that will make them happy. Because as you know, if they’re happy… you’re happy too.
