Salmon and Sweet Potato Puree

Salmon and Sweet Potato Puree

It is important to introduce fish to your weaning baby early on to allow them to develop a taste for it*. This Salmon and Sweet Potato recipe is great to introduce stronger tasting fish to your little one as it can be served as a purée or mashed to dip with finger foods. Offer the boiled sweet potato (unblitzed) or whole pasta pieces, for a baby led weaning meal your little one will love!

*We recommend that you start on mild fish such as cod before trying out salmon as the stronger flavour may be rejected.

Cook time: 30 minutes
Makes: 6 x 90ml / 3oz

350ml low salt vegetable stock
150g frozen peas 
1 large sweet potato, peeled and cubed
2 salmon fillets


  1. Place a large saucepan over a medium heat and add the stock. Bring to the boil, then add the vegetables.
  2. Lower the heat to a simmer for 15-20 minutes. Once the sweet potatoes have begun to soften, add the salmon to the saucepan.
  3. Cover and allow the salmon to poach for about 8-10 minutes. Remove the salmon and flake into a large bowl, ensuring there are no small bones.
  4. Put the vegetables into a blender and blend.
  5. Portion the vegetables into your pots and add the fish on top. Alternatively, you can blend the salmon if your baby is not used to texture.
  6. Freeze extra portions for future use.
