Today marks the end of a month-long challenge for my children: they completed their goal of eating a pescatarian diet.

And how did my daughter break the diet? Chicken nuggets.

It was a spur-of-the-moment decision that drew the whole family in. One minute my daughter suggested that the whole family go pescatarian for one month, the next, I was meal planning with a new set of challenges in hand.

Cooking for mostly pescatarians proved to be more challenging than I expected. I say mostly because my husband and I tried to eat mostly fish for some time, and he wasn’t quite prepared to go back to a no-meat diet. So I found myself trying my best to cook meals that could make everyone happy!

Shrimp was a go-to, and easiest when it came to appeasing all my eaters. I love it because it cooks so quickly, and with a quick and flavorful compound butter at the ready, it made for a delicious weeknight meal when I didn’t want to over think anything.

For the record, my daughter wants me to point out that she lasted to the end among our resident pescatarians. In her words, she “succeeded.” (Though I can tell she is secretly happy to return to chicken!)

    Seafood is my favorite, but I think even for me foregoing meat for a month might be difficult. Sometimes I just crave chicken, turkey, or beef! That’s great that your family followed the diet together — what a great idea! And this shrimp looks so succulent and flavorful. That butter sounds divine!

    I’d probably go for a chicken nugget as well. Lol. This dish looks FAB and so flavorful. That butter sounds tooooo tempting…like I’d just be eating it off the spoon!
