When I have the time to run to the store, I love to pick up fresh fish, particularly salmon. It makes for a great dinner, leftovers for a healthy lunch, and a great food group for babies.
I buy enough fish for my husband and I to eat, and to prepare for the little one. I make it two different ways, one of them being bland enough for the baby to eat and digest.
The adult version has more spices and flavoring than the baby’s salmon. When I feed the salmon to the baby, I like to mix his with a little sweet potato and he loves it!
At the store, I buy a pound and a quarter of salmon, and at home I cute it into two pieces. One piece that is enough for the two adults, and a small piece that is for the baby.
Ingredients for Adult Salmon:
- 2 TB dijon Mustard
- Seasoning: salt, pepper, garlic powder and cayenne pepper
Ingredients for Baby Salmon:
- Seasoning: pepper, garlic powder
On a baking sheet that is lined, place both pieces of salmon on it. Rub each piece with a little olive oil. Sprinkle the baby’s piece with the above seasonings for baby. Then, with the adult piece, rub the mustard on it and then sprinkle it with the above adult seasonings.
Place the salmon in a 375 degree oven to roast for 25 minutes. After that, remove the baby’s piece of salmon and store it in a container for them to have that day, or the following. I like to then turn the broiler on and let the adult salmon sit under the broiler for 3-4 minutes, watching closely to ensure it doesn’t burn.
Once the salmon is done, serve and enjoy!
