As those of you who have followed this blog with any regularity know, my wife and I have worked to introduce our son to eating fish as part of a healthy diet. Not to mention that Nancy and I both love eating it. It would not be an understatement to say that
we have failed miserably.After months of trying on a weekly basis, we decided to give the whole effort a break. We feared that we were creating a situation where he would develop such a negative attitude, he would never even try to develop his tastes.
Then last weekend, as Nancy and I talked about what we might throw on the grill for dinner, fish came up again and, out of the blue, Quinn said he would try fish on the grill. He and Nancy went to the store and picked out three beautiful fresh shark steaks.
I marinated them in some low-sodium soy, apple cider vinegar and spices and threw them on the grill, basting them with the marinade. I served them with fresh sweet corn and my
sweet vinegar slaw. Nancy and I thought they were delicious and Quinn ate nearly the whole thing! I'm not Pollyanna enough to believe that this a complete turn-around, but it is a nice first step. And shark steak is wonderfully low in calories and fat.
A 4-ounce shark steak is only 144 calories with 4 grams of fat and no fiber.
