The Superb Salmon/Laks/鲑鱼[guī yú]

Can be served to babues from 6 months, but i serve it to J from 7+ months.

If there is only one single non-white fish that I would choose to introduce to J, it would be the Superb Salmon.

1. Pre-heat oven to 180 degree celsius.

2. Place the salmon fillet (75-100g) on a piece of baking-paper and brush with 1 teaspoon of olive oil.

3. Pack the fish with the baking-paper so that air cannot penetrate.

4. Put the package in an ovenproof dish and bake for 10-15 mins. depending on the thickness of fish (the fish should feel firm and the meat should easily be separated with a fork).

5. Mash fish with a fork or puree through a blender or a sieve.

6. Cool down and serve.

1. Also ideal to serve mix with mash potato or carrot puree.

2. If you find it too troublesome to make such small portion for baby, you can increase the portion proportionately and eat it yourself for lunch. Just don't blend your own portion. Very often, when i don't have time to take lunch, i will feed myself while feeding J.

Nutritional Value:
Salmon is high in protein, heme iron, vitamin B12, vitamin B6, niacin, phosphorous, potassium, copper and Omega-3s. There are three kinds of Omega-3s in salmon--docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and alpha-linoleic acid (ALA). Like most fish, there are no carbohydrates in salmon.
