Lately our kids have been SO picky when it comes to eating! Despite that, one food that always seems to be a hit with our 2 and 4 year old is fish. We’ve been creating lots of great recipes and variations for serving fish in our home lately and I can’t wait to share this recipe for Crunchy Breaded Alaska Cod Kabobs with a tangy lemon dill dipping sauce. The kids love the fun presentation of this meal, the crunchy panko parmesan crumb crust adds a nice texture and anything that can be dipped is always a winner. This kid-friendly dish is sure to be a hit with everyone in the family and it’s simple, easy preparation makes it a great weekday option.

When serving fish to my family, wild-caught, Alaska whitefish varieties (such as halibut, sablefish, sole, Alaska pollock and cod) most often have the best results. The mild taste isn’t over powering and it’s so versatile when it comes to cooking which makes them a delicious and easy way to add more seafood to my families diet. I love using Alaska seafood due to it’s high quality. The pristine fisheries of Alaska provide nearly 60% all seafood harvested in the United States while also maintaining sustainable harvesting practices.

This is my favorite way to prepare cod. This recipe for lightly breaded cod kabobs is so easy and satisfying. Panko bread crumbs and parmesan cheese give this fish a great crunch and the kabobs are a fun touch. We love serving it with a lemon dill dipping sauce. If kabobs aren’t your thing, simply omit and bread the fillets.
