Salmon with Sweet Potato, Orange & Ginger
Fish may seem like a "grown-up" food, but it is ideal for babies as it’s rich in protein, vitamins and minerals. Oily fish like salmon is a particular superfood for babies, as it contains high levels of omega-3 – a fatty acid that is known to boost brain development. In this recipe we blend salmon with sweet potato, a splash of orange and a hint of ginger.
1 fillet of wild salmon
1.5 lb organic sweet potato, peeled and chopped into chunks
Juice of one organic orange, squeezed
½ tsp freshly grated or ground organic ginger
½ cup water
Preheat the oven to 425°F.
Line a roasting pan or baking sheet with parchment paper.
Pat the salmon dry with a paper towel.
Drizzle some avocado oil over the top of the salmon and rub it all over with your fingers or a pastry brush to coat the fish.
Sprinkle the salmon with the grated or ground ginger.
Place the salmon in the roasting pan, skin-side down and place in the oven.
Roast for about 5-6 minutes or until it easily flakes when touched with a fork.
Once cooled down, remove the skin.
Meanwhile place the sweet potato chunks into a pot with hot water and gently boil for about 6-8 minutes until soft to the touch.
Drain the sweet potato and place inside a food processor.
Add the salmon.
Add the juice of one organic orange.
Blend to your desired consistency, adding more water if needed.
