Because the white fishes are such mild flavored fish, they make the perfect dinner choices. And covering them with cornmeal makes them into the healthy fish stick all kids will love.
Cornmeal crusted fish makes a great sandwich
Everyone knows how healthy fish is to eat: It reduces risk of heart attack and cancer and lowers blood pressure. Yet the average American only eats a paltry three ounces of fish per week. That's less than half the eight ounces the USDA recommends. Most don't know which fish to buy or, more commonly, how to prepare it. That coupled with the fact that kids tend to turn their noses up at seafood, make it one of the least common dinner choices. But I've discovered a way to ingest at least four ounces of fish a week and keep the kids smiling while they're devouring it... and no they're not store-bought fish sticks. They're homemade fish po'boys.
Why is this fish sandwich recipe the perfect Friday night dinner? Not only are the fillets covered in a delicious cornmeal crust, they're placed on a sandwich roll and slathered with a tangy mayonnaise sauce. Sure your kids may be like mine and prefer ketchup to the tartar sauce, but if it means they'll be eating the fish, why argue? I didn't and my son ate his whole sandwich... and asked for seconds. Yes!
