Packed full of Omega 3 essential fatty acids, salmon is a great addition to your baby's diet. It has a whole host of benefits from brain development to preventing excema.

This easy cheesy salmon recipe was a hands down success with my little one.


If you make up a batch of cheese sauce in advance, this is a speedy recipe you can throw together in next to no time.

Blitzed up to a purée, it's perfect for babies from six months. Older kids will also enjoy this if you just flake the fish and leave chunky. Some lovely mashed potato on the side is a perfect accompaniment.

I've also added carrots and broccoli to this recipe for extra vitamins and the onion and celery gives it a great flavour base.

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 10 minutes
Makes: 4-6 servings

Ingredients
2 salmon fillets (without skin or bones)
2 knobs of butter
1 carrot
Florets from half a head if broccoli
1 small onion
1stick of celery
25ml full fat milk
250ml basic cheese sauce

Method
Place the salmon fillets in a dish with the butter.

Cover with cling film and pierce a few holes or use a lid with a gap.
Microwave for 2-3 minutes until the fish is cooked and easily flakes. Microwaving fish is a really quick way to cook it while keeping it moist and tender

Flake the salmon and remove any tiny bones. I buy my salmon without skin or bones but it's always a good idea to double check as you flake the fish.
Dice the onion and celery finely and then fry until soft in a little oil.
Meanwhile, finely chop the carrot and steam with the broccoli florets until tender.

Add the carrots, broccoli and salmon flakes to the onion and celery, giving it a good mix.

For younger children you can either mash or purée this mix or leave as it is for older kids.
Add the cheese sauce and milk, giving everything a good mix.

The recipe can be eaten without cheese sauce but adding it, gives some great flavour, lots of calcium and a lovely consistency.
