One of my kid’s and (husband’s) favorite quick and easy dinners! Includes my trick for making the best fries and a shake recipe I made up one summer morning when I was frustrated at myself that the kids didn’t eat a lot of their veggies. They only like pink shakes! I also didn’t like it that they were eating so much sugar. Luckily, the strawberry-watermelon shake requires zero sugar and it is so sweet!
Fries, Strawberry-Watermelon Shake, and Paprika Salmon
- Cooking and Prep: 40 m
- Serves: 6
Prepare the Fries
On stovetop, place a pan with oil.
In the meantime, slice your potatoes. (If you want big fries, cut them the longer way.) Add all the potatoes to the pan and turn on the heat to medium-high (closer to high).
Sprinkle paprika and salt. The paprika gives it a nice color. Cook for 25–30 minutes, stirring once after about 10 minutes. Stir again at the end of the cook time to make sure it's ready. Remove your fries to a bowl with a paper towel so the oil drains off.
Prepare the Strawberry-Watermelon Shake

Place your fish and sprinkle salt, pepper, paprika and fresh parsley.
