Here's another child friendly recipe. I normally make a big patch of these fish cakes and freeze some for later.

When I started weaning my kids I threw in steamed sweet potatoes and left pretty much all of the spices out. The sweet potato gives it a flavour that babies like.  

You need:

  • 4-5 fillets of salmon
  • 2-3 fillets of cod
  • 1/2 leek 
  • 1/2 cup of peas (I used frozen)
  • little piece of ginger (I used roughly a size of a thumb)
  • 5-6 cloves of garlic
  • 1 egg
  • 1 lemon squeezed
  • pinch of chili flakes
  • pinch of himalayan salt
  • 1-2 tbs of soya sauce
  • pinch of black pepper 
  • handful of fresh coriander
  • handful of fresh basil
  • handful of fresh parsley
  • handful on fresh mint

Start by steaming the fish. Once it's cooked remove the skin and bones. Place the pieces on a big bowl and break the texture (either using a fork or your bare hands). Add chopped and fined garlic, ginger and leek. Add peas, lemon juice, chopped herbs and all the other spices. Break the egg in the bowl and mix it well in the paste. Make little patties between your hands and fry them on a medium heat in coconut oil.
