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. 

Ingredients:

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

 

Method:

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.

Add water.

Blend to your desired consistency, adding more water if needed.

Serve warm.
