  • 2 tsp oil (vegetable, rapeseed, olive)

  • 1 leek, sliced

  • 75g potato, peeled and diced

  • 200g unsalted fish stock

  • 120g salmon fillet, skinned and diced

  • 2 tbsp cream cheese

  • 15g mini pasta shells

  • 1 tsp fresh dill, chopped

It is so important to include oily fish like salmon in your baby’s diet, ideally twice a week as it contains essential fatty acids that are vital for brain and development.

  1. Heat the oil in a saucepan. Add the leek and fry for a few minutes. Add the potato and stock. Cover and simmer for 10 minutes.

  2. Add the salmon and simmer for 5 minutes. Add the cream cheese and dill.

  3. Cook the pasta in boiling water according to the packet instructions. Drain and add to the salmon. Mix well until coated.
