Tasty Dish

When I started weaning my baby to solid food I made sure that I gave him a taste of everything. I want him to be able to accept new food and not be a fussy eater like his mommy. Today I decided to introduce something new to his diet and I choose salmon. To my surprise he really liked it.

What was on baby Fizzles dinner plate: Annabel’s Tasty Salmon.

Suitable from: 7months

Preparation time: 10 minutes

Cooking time: 15 minutes

Makes 2 portions and is suitable for freezing

You will need

  • 1 large carrot, diced
  • 100g salmon fillet
  • 2tsp milk
  • 3 tomatoes
  • Butter
  • Cheddar cheese, grated

Now its time to get cookin

  • Steam the carrot for 15 minutes or until tender.
  • Put the salmon in a pan of milk and poach over a low heat.
  • To skin the tomatoes, cut a cross in the base of each one and put them in a heatproof bowl. Pour over boiling water and leave for 1 minutes. Drain then rinse with cold water and the skin should come away easily. Deseed and roughly chop the tomatoes.
  • Melt butter in a saucepan and sauté the tomatoes for 2-3 minutes until mushy. Remove from the heat and stir in the grated cheese until melted.
  • Flake the fish and mix this together with the tomatoes and cheese sauce and the diced carrot.

Bon a petit!

Chefs Tip: Sautéing the tomatoes in butter helps your baby’s body to absorb Lycopene, a protective antioxidant.
