Salmon with Carrots, Cheese and Tomatoes by leading children’s cookery author Annabel Karmel
Fish in your baby’s diet is so important. We know that the healthy fats contained in fish encourage growth as well as the development of your baby’s brain, nervous system and vision. Oily fish such as salmon or mackerel is a great source of Omega 3 fats.
Try mixing fish with stronger tastes such as carrots, tomato and grated cheddar (and always check for bones before serving).
|250g Carrots Peeled and skinned|
|225g Salmon Fillets Skinned|
|40g Unsalted Butter|
|2 Ripe Tomatoes Skinned, deseeded and chopped|
|40g Cheddar Cheese Grated|
Put the carrots in a steamer set over a pan of boiling water and cook for 20 minutes. Meanwhile, place the fish in a microwavable dish, add the milk, dot with 15g butter and cover, leaving an air vent. Microwave on high for 2-3 minutes. Alternatively, put the fish in a pan, cover with a little milk and simmer for about 5 minutes, or until cooked through.

Stir and serve
Melt the remaining butter in a saucepan, add the tomatoes and sauté until mushy. Stir in the cheese until melted. Blend the carrots with the tomato mixture. Remove the fish from its cooking liquor and flake, making sure there no bones. Mix the fish with the carrots and tomatoes. For younger babies you can blend the fish together with the carrots and tomato for a smoother texture.
