Poached Salmon for Baby

I tried this with my little one over the weekend. Salmon is a great and healthy source of protein and omega 3 fatty acids. I served this as a finger food, but you can puree salmon with some veggies if your little one isn't eating finger foods yet. My little one did not love this, but he did eat about a 1/3 of it after spitting out the first few bites. This is for babies 7+ months.

Here's what you'll need:
1 small salmon filet
Filtered water
Olive oil
1 tsp chopped fresh dill leaves
1 bay leaf

Put filtered water in a small skillet until it's approx 1/2 inch deep. Add approx 1/4 cup olive oil. Add dill and bay leaf. Add salmon filet, cover and cook over med high heat for 8-10 minutes. Put salmon on a plate and let cool for a minute. Cut into tiny pieces, and puree or serve as finger food. Make sure there are no bones or cartiledge in the portion you serve your little one. Enjoy!
