Eating food on a stick is always more fun and this is a tasty way to get your child to eat more oily fish. Its true that fish is good for the brain and the essential fatty acids in fish like salmon will boost your child’s brainpower and concentration.
In fact the Omega 3 essential fatty acids in oily fish can revolutionise the lives of parents coping with youngsters who have dyslexia, ADHD and dyspraxia. There is overwhelming evidence that increasing a child’s intake of essential fatty acids can result in improved concentration, learning and behaviour.
1 tbs sesame seeds
Put 6 wooden skewers to soak in cold water for 30 minutes. Meanwhile,toast sesame seeds in a small frying pan over a medium heat for 2-3 minutes, stirring 2 or 3 times. Spread out on a plate and allow to cool.
Wash your hands.
Preheat the grill/broiler on high. Cut the salmon into 1cm/ 1/2 in cubes. Thread 3-4 cubes onto each skewer and lay the skewers in one layer on a foil-lined bakingtray.
Scrape the skin from the ginger using the tip of a teaspoon. Grate the ginger finely, you need 1/4 tsp. Put the ginger in a bowl with the honey (rub a little oil on the spoon to make the honey slide off more easily when measuring) and soy sauce and mix together.
Brush some of the teryaki sauce onto the salmon and grill/broil for 2 minutes, as close to the heat as possible. Brush again with the teryaki sauce and grill/broil for another 2 minutes. Turn the skewers over and repeat the brushing and grilling process.
Sprinkle over the sesame seeds over the salmon before serving with Easy Chinese Fried Rice.
Suitable from 18 months (but you must remove the skewer)
