Calling all cooks! Whether you’re a professional, a hobbyist or an expert at cooking for the kids, we have a fun challenge for you. For the next seven weeks — the 40 days of Lent, when many Christians abstain from eating meat on Fridays — we want to hear what you’ll do with one fish and three ingredients. It’s our #FridayFishDish!
Each Wednesday, we’ll announce our mystery basket, and until noon on the following Monday, we’ll take your suggestions for what you’d make with it.
You don’t have to give us exact recipes (though those are welcome, too), just ideas for a concept. In the Life&Style section on the following Wednesday, we’ll publish a professional’s recipe using the fish and ingredients, and include the best of your suggestions in print alongside it.
For our first challenge? Tuna! Come up with a dish using tuna and the following three ingredients: Soy, Black Pepper and Brussels Sprouts. Just like in a Top Chef Quickfire Challenge, you’re also allowed to use whatever pantry ingredients you wish.
You can leave your suggestions in the comments section below, on the Small Bites Facebook page here,  or you can Tweet @small_bites  or Instagram your photo  with the hashtag #fridayfishdish.
We can’t wait to see what you’re going to come up with.
In the meantime, if you need suggestions on where to buy ingredients for the challenge, here is a blog post from a few years back on Great Seafood Shops in the Hudson Valley.
