I personally love fish. I love how healthy it is for you and how versatile it is, I never get bored cooking with it! That being said, I know students are often resistant when it comes to fish, so I developed this recipe for Chicopee Public Schools to get students excited about it.
This recipe combines big flavors like Creole seasoning and spicy remoulade sauce and pairs them with a mild white fish, a great way to introduce kids
to fish without it being overly “fishy.” It is definitely spicy, so feel free to adjust the seasoning as you see fit for the age groups you’re working with. I hope your students enjoy it!
