10 Types Of Seafood Even Picky Eaters Will Dive Right Into

Since I could remember I have always been a picky eater and was completely stubborn to any idea of trying something new. Once I got to college I started to try to go out of my comfort zone and I was surprised at how much I was actually missing out on. My diet consisted of french fries and chicken tenders and I was completely happy with that. But there's a lot of seafood I wish I had known about.

Here are the 10 most safe tasting seafood for picky eaters.

1. Mahi Mahi (Dolphinfish)

Before you say "Oh my god, she's eating a dolphin" no it's not Flipper, it's a fish. This is totally not fishy and this fish was one of the first seafood I had ever tasted! It's not too fishy and I honestly can't get enough of it!

2. Grouper

Grouper was the second fish I ever tried and this one is a bit of a sweeter fish. The favorite way I like it prepared is blackened or fried!

3. Snapper

In all honesty, this may be one of my favorite fish and it's great prepared anyway. This was one of the newer fish I have tried and I don't regret it at all.

4. Cobia

You can find cobia at some high-end fish restaurants or sometimes at little restaurants. It's pretty good and it's really great blackened or seasoned accordingly.

5. Tripletail

This fish won't be at any restaurant for you but if you ever get a chance to eat this fish, I highly recommend it. It's amazing to eat fried or even blackened.

6. Fried shrimp

I don't personally like shrimp, but if it's fried I will eat it. If you're a picky eater like me you won't like the texture of regular shrimp so you'll need it fried.

7. Redfish

This fish you may see at a high-end restaurant or at a seafood restaurant where redfish are known. This fish is outstanding when it is blackened or seared and it's the least fishy-fish I know of.

8. Snook

This fish is well-known, especially in southwest Florida. Snook season is looked forward to because snook is a very good fish to eat.

9. Lobster

If you're a picky eater and you don't like texture I would recommend this species in mac and cheese. This is the best way to eat it in my opinion.

10. Scallops

I would recommend this wrapped in bacon because it hides the texture! It's the best of both worlds.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
