I recently read a survey which stated that one in three moms complain about having to make multiple dinners to please all the members of her family nightly. This struck a chord with me because admittedly, I was one of those moms, as are many of my friends. A while back I presented myself with a challenge, a game of sorts, to please all my diners using the same dinner components for all. I coined it "triple play."

Triple, because I see the various palates I need to please divided into three groups. First, the young eaters who require simple-to-eat, easy food. Next, the teens who want healthy, good, and sometimes fun food. Lastly, the adults who crave something satisfying and sophisticated after a long day. We know that cooking the meal is often only half the battle. Getting through dinner with everyone happy and satiated is a herculean task.

I'm proud to say the concept really works! Everyone is happy at dinner and I am spending way less time preparing it! During these hot summer days, I thought I'd share my ideas for a light, fresh, and healthy fish dinner designed to garner rave reviews by all and have you in and out of the kitchen in no time. Enjoy!
