Quick and easy salmon pasta recipe suitable for babies from 6 months. Makes a great lunch for mum too!

Ingredients

  • small salmon fillet 1, checked for bones
  • Baby pasta 50g
  • small leek 1/2, sliced and diced
  • Broccoli 50g
  • parmesan cheese 3 tbsp, grated
  • crème fraiche 4 tbsp
  • Milk 5 tbsp
  • Olive oil 1 tbsp

Method

  • STEP 1
    Place the salmon in a microwaveable bowl with 2 tablespoons of milk and cook in the microwave for 2 minutes. Check the salmon for any bones and flake.
  • STEP 2
    Cook the baby pasta. If you have a steamer pan, steam the broccoli above the boiling pasta for 4-5 minutes. Alternatively, cook the broccoli in a pan of boiling water for 4 mins.
  • STEP 3
    Place the leek in a saucepan with a little olive oil and cook over the heat until soft. Add the rest of the milk, bring to the boil, then add the salmon and poach for 3-4 mins.
  • STEP 4
    Stir in the cheese until melted, then add the pasta.
  • STEP 5
    Stir in the crème fraiche and mash to the desired consistency.

If you don't have parmesan to hand, any full flavoured cheese, such as Cheddar, can be used.

This makes a great lunch for mum too – add an extra touch of cheese and some black pepper – and don't puree!
