Salmon with cheesy garlic mashed potatoes
I got bored of giving BabyS porridge and decided to give her 'western' food..
This is a good dish becos you can use the same ingredients to create a dish for the whole family to share..
finely chopped broccoli
finely shredded carrots
milk (fresh or formula/ breast milk)
Unsalted butter (small amount)
Boil the potatoes till soft. (i put in one small clove of garlic at the same time)
Steam broccoli and carrots till done.
Steam salmon till done.
Mash potatoes, garlic, milk, unsalted butter, pepper and cheddar cheese and mix well.
Put potato onto plate and assemble broccoli, carrots and salmon on top.
Or you can mix all the potato and vegetables together and serve it this way
potatoes (Can boil together with baby's portion)
Garlic clove (to boil with potatoe)
milk (fresh / powdered milk)
Prepare potatoes in the same way as you would for baby's portion but you may add in more salt according to taste. (I added in bacon bits for mine)
Wash salmon and pat dry. Then pat corn flour onto whole surface and pan fry. If you leave the skin on, pay fry the skin side first. Leave it till cooked (when the fish is sufficiently cooked on one side, it will detach from the surface if u move it gently. If not it will stick) Then turn it over to other side to finish cooking.
When you turn the salmon to the other side, throw in some slices of garlic to let it carmalise and add more flavour to the fish. When fish is cooked, add in teriyak sauce and dilute it with a tiny bit of water.
Remove fish and garlic and place on plate.
Using the same pan, add in more garlic and vegetables. leave till cooked. You may wish to add in more sauce if you prefer.
