My daughter is not a big fan of fish but fish is very very good for health espcially for kids. So, I thought of mincing prawn and pan frying it. I am glad I tried because she did eat 1.5 tiny pieces. Hopefully she will slowly start liking it. I plan to do the same with any other kind of fish as well. Please do try it for your kids. Thank you.
