The “usual” food is and will be a way to keep alive part of our culture and tradition but, it is never too much to try new things, especially when it comes to products so essential within a balanced diet, don’t you think?
Here are 9 ideas for preparing fish in a different way:
1. As a filling ingredient
In peppers, lasagne, cannelloni, empanadas, croquettes or buñuelos. Many children enjoy cod croquettes and do not protest because they have fish.
2. Homemade pizzas
Who doesn’t like pizza? Including pieces of fish in them is a good way to induce consumption. Mussels, prawns, bonito, anchovies, octopus or smoked are just some of the ideas we can take into account.
If chosen with care, because not all fish are suitable, they can be a good solution for a meal. We will have to choose soft-tasting fish, such as canned tuna.
I’m sure they’ll become your favorite snack. Grind canned tuna or the remains of fish already cooked with cream, cheese or tofu.
5. Salads and salads
In addition to tuna and bonito, we can add to our salads preserved sardines, anchovies, mussels or octopus.
6. Appetizers, starters and tapas
Try to make tasty carpaccios of salmon or bonito, montaditos of tuna, casseroles of clams, smoked dishes, etc.. The possibilities are endless.
7. Tortillas or scrambled eggs
Among the exquisite suggestions we could make you are a cod or tuna omelette, or a scrambled eggs and prawns. I’m sure you’ll conquer your guests.
8. Fish soups
They tend to be liked by everyone and in addition to being nutritious, they can be accompanied by many ingredients, such as pasta, potato or shredded fish.
9. Unique dishes
A paella, spaghetti, lasagne or stew if accompanied by fish or seafood can be a unique ideal dish.
