Is it teething time for your little one?


Listen, we all know we should eat more fish and obviously we want the whole family to enjoy as part of a varied diet- but that isn't always easy, especially when you have little fusspots to feed!


Experts say we should be having around 2-3 portions of fish or seafood a week. 


That is a lot of fish to convince our little ones to eat! 


We have come up with these family-friendly fish dishes that will hopefully have them asking for more!


1. Cod fillets with sweet potato wedges and minty crushed peas



What you need:


2 Birds Eye Cod Fillets in Batter

3 sweet potatoes – peeled or unpeeled according to preference

1 tbsp olive oil

1 tsp sweet paprika

1 tsp oregano

Lemon wedges

Salt and pepper


For the crushed peas:

200g Birds Eye Garden Peas – cooked and drained

1 tbsp olive oil

1 tbsp fresh mint, finely chopped

1 tsp lemon juice

Salt and pepper


What you do:


Cut the sweet potato into evenly sized wedges. 


In a bowl mix together the olive oil, paprika, oregano, salt and pepper, add the sweet potato wedges and toss to coat evenly. 


Spread in one layer on a baking tray and bake for 30 to 40 minutes at 180°C.


Oven bake the cod fillets.


When the wedges are cooked place under a warm grill for a few minutes for a crispy texture.


Meanwhile, add the cooked garden peas, olive oil, lemon juice, mint, salt and pepper into a small blender. Pulse for a few seconds - until the peas are crushed.


On a plate, serve one cod fillet with a side of sweet potato wedges, a generous spoon of crushed peas and a wedge of lemon. This recipe serves two people.
